My wife and I decided to get rid of our motorcycle and buy a small sportscar, convertible. We bought our Mazda MX-5 the day after selling the cycle. This has been the best buy we ever made. We both love driving it and we drove it to the Great Smoky Mountains a couple of weeks after buying it. Had a ball driving in the Smokies with the top down. Can't compare with the motorcycle. No hot, wet, uncomfortable days with this toy. Should have bought one years ago.
The paddle shift makes it drive and feel like a stick without having to clutch.
Maybe a little more horsepower; that's because I like power, not because this car needs it.
