2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring 2dr Convertible w/Power Hard Top (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
I test drove all models for a while. The Grand Touring with upgraded suspension & DSC w/traction control feature made the car handle excellent & still provide a very comfortable ride, The Remote keyless entry is a must have. The retractable hard top is another excellent feature. Got the limited slip also, the leather is very nice quality. I have a 1999 20th anniversary miata it is very raw in comparison, the 99 does not have enough leg room. The 08 has way more than enough leg room as well as more roomy cockpit. The manual says you can run premium gas in it for added performance. I had test driven a new corvette, S2000, 350Z, BMW Z4, Solstice, nothing came close to the miata
Sport tuned suspension,hard to believe they can get that kind of ride quality & still handle this well. Advanced keyless entry, retractable hardtop, DSC W/traction control, awesome brakes, Bose stereo is very Nice and extremely clear, leather is very Nice quality, very roomy compared to Honda S2000.
2nd power port, iPod port, outside temperature display, would like more lower positions for driver's seat, cannot see under sunvisor, these are nit picks, the car is AWESOME.
