Default Hey guys

I'm not yet a Miata owner, but I am in the Mazda family: I currently own/drive a 2007 Mazdaspeed 6.

I've been considering a Miata for years, lately I've managed to gather some spending cash and have been checking out late NA/early NB's locally.

My biggest concern is if it would be something I'd want to daily drive over the Mazdaspeed6 (about 15 mins of freeway + 10 mins of streets) to/from work at least a few days a week + weekend stuff.
I don't really have any plans to race it or anything, I just keep going back & forth whether or not it'd end up sitting never being driven if I get it as a "weekend only" thing.

Anyone else have any input on how often they actually drive it as a 2nd/3rd/other vehicle? I almost feel like I need to rent one for a week and see if it fits.

I only drive mines on the weekends really. Its currently in the process of being turbo'd, but when I was NA, it didnt find it to have the modern day creature comforts of my DD Mazda 3. It is definitely a blast to drive though (when I do drive it).
