Purchased partly in reponse to a regretful sale of a 1999 Miata. This is a huge upgrade to the second generation Miata. They are completely different vehicles; we purchased this after reviewing competitive offerings from GM and BMW.
6 speed manual, interior design is logical and classy. Handling is near-perfect. Reasonable fuel economy. Shape starting to become masculine. Accessory catalog is addictive once you start. Great value for $.
Satellite radio is dealer installed: wires are visible on exterior! Seat hurts your bum after 30 mins. Various rattles in dash - loud enough for my wife to notice. Add rubber cushion to cup holder base. Add spare tire. Fabric gets bunched up in cold weather when lowering top. Prem fuel only.
