Anyone looking for a special used MX-5 should take the time and effort to find the Shinsen Edition, made only in 2003. It draws many looks and inquiries. Great gas mileage also. Close to 30 mpg with no babying at all. Just pure fun.
I'm always getting asked what kind of car this is. With the aero package and 16" wheels it doesn't appear to be a plain Jane Miata. There is a definite fun factor involved in my daily commute that I could not have in anything else.
The only improvement would have been to make leather seats standard as my cloth seats are not easy to keep clean.
