are the door card bigger in the NB? It feels tighter inside in my sister's NB, when compared to an NA. I'm too big for this car anyway.

The NC looks like a bar of soap on wheels. It's a wine and cheeser's car.

Agreed on all points above. The NA is the better "sports car". The NB is the better car in general.

which miata would you prefer, the bigger and stronger 2006 miatas? Or older models?
NC=bigger, yes.

stronger, no.

Remember Savior, the "old" Miata's engine was made for boosting.

The NC is a very nice car. Great fun to drive, solid and responsive, the engine isn't bad either.

But I find it looks too high off the ground, the wheels are too big, and the engine is too hard to turbo.

I hope a mazdaspeed version with the engine out of the MS 3 is on its way.

I personally like the style of the nc miata. I have a co-worker who is going to buy one and can't wait to drive it. I'm sure this new miata will become more popular when people find ways to add more power with a turbo or supercharger.

Having never met a buffet I didn't like, I prefer the NA for the extra width. Especially with the arm rests removed and replaced with a strap. They are too low to rest my arm on any way.
