Maybe it'll come with a sybian insert in the driver's seat.

Its been creeping up, just like censoring on the radio. First homosexual slurs were blocked and then swears considered extra dirty in this country but just something you call your mates in other countries.

Great-looking car.

Really disappointed that the LSD is ONLY packaged with the ridiculous brake/BBS kit. Ugh. So cheapest Miata with an LSD is something like $33k with destination included. Previously you could get a Miata with an LSD for $28k.

The Sport is actually a good deal, with the exception of the lack of LSD. If the Clubs are coming in at under 2,300 tested weight, then the Sport will be even lighter, since it lacks the body pieces, some extra speakers, and a few other things. I have bitched a thousand times in here about the HP, but apparently it is faster than the NC and, if I am honest, driving my salvage title 115k 06 NC was the most fun I have ever had in any of my 4 Miatas, MSM included... I need to test drive.

Nope. The LSD comes with Sport Suspension package on the Club. The Brembo's and BBS are the $3400 package.

Keith at FM has already stated to skip it because he should be able to put together a 4 wheel kit for less than Brembo package.

http://www.edmunds.com/mazda/mx-5-mi...oad-test1.html

"We spent some time with the performance-oriented Club trim which adds 17-inch wheels with wider tires, a limited-slip differential, a sport-tuned suspension, sporty body cladding, a premium Bose audio system and the Mazda Connect infotainment interface. On top of the $29,420 pricetag for the club, was the optional $3,400 Brembo/BBS package that adds upgraded front brakes, lighter wheels, side sill extensions and a rear bumper skirt. The as-tested price jumps to $32,820."

The proper place to photograph a miata. On it's knees behind the dumpster.

I hadn't really formed much of an opinion about the styling of the ND until I saw this curve:



That makes me like it.



Still, I'm slightly puzzled by the fact that people are debating over such minutae in MSRP. Discussing the difference between $29.4k and $32.8k leads me to believe that certain people here are actually contemplating purchasing this car brand new, from a dealer.

It's difficult for me to wrap my head around that concept.

It looks like 15" wheels might fit over those Brembos judging from the picture. I'm looking for the first ND with 15x8 6uls to pop up. I know they are 4x100, but any word on how the offsets will compare and if any NA/NB fitments will be compatible?

If no one purchased new cars, there would be no used cars for the misers to buy.

Am I suddenly on the GRM forum? Jesus that attitude is so annoying.
