Great Car To Toy With — Overall the car is a great buy for the money. The vehicle is light weight and has a good solid powerband throughout. If you have some spare money, putting FM parts on it is a great way to go to get good reliable aftermarket parts. Otherwise its still easy to modify if you go custom. Either way, if you just are looking to modify or just want something peppy to go around town, this is a great car for any roadster enthusiast.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Reliable, economical, beautiful body, low maintenance

Cons

If you are over 5' 10" tall or if you like to take long road trips this car is probably not for you.

Sporty, Reliable, Economical And Fun To Drive With Top Down On A Warm Evening. — I've owned this car since August 2008 I believe I'm only the second owner. It's been a fun, sporty car that gets good mileage around 28-32mpg and low maintenance costs. I'm just under 5' 10" so I fit well inside the cockpit. I've enjoyed cruising around with the top down, especially on warm evenings. If you are a UT fan you'll enjoy the Lava orange mica color as it reminds many of the burnt orange. If you aren't a UT fan you'll still likely find this a gorgeous colored car.

Mazdaspeed Miata — The Mazdaspeed Miata is a near-perfect drivers car packaged in a tight 2500lb roadster package. 52/48% weight distribution, 33% stiffer spring rates and Long travel shocks over the sport package, 178bhp from the factory, short throw close ratio 6-speed gear box behind a 4.10 TORSEN diff, all make the car pure mechanical poetry. The shifter is amazing, although plagued with bushing problems that can easily be addressed cheap, and is expected every 50-70kmi. The car responds amazingly well to simple upgrades, and many (myself included) are running 225+ whp with under $1000 work. The car is light on its feet even at speeds >75mph. Interior options are minimal, with leather and cloth top as the only option (GT). Taller people (5'11" +) will want the cloth over leather due to the leather seats extra bolstering. Weak points of the car are its 4.10 Diff, toping you out too soon, and the restrictions on height of the driver without changing seats or fabrication. Great car for the track minded individual or for the occasional spirited daily driver. In stock trim 0-60 in 6.2s with about a 14.8 1/4.
