Save a bit more and get an NZ new S2000. They are not dull to drive, and can be, ahem quite lively. Black or white is what I'm looking for. And if you spend a bit more you can aftermarket hardtops. Ok a lot more.

Or an MRS? I think they look pretty good in certain colours, plus a Honda K Series this win them. Just....

Go to a MX-5 Club and tell them they are for Women.
They usually have long hair and skinny jeans so might be comparable.
See if you can get a Z3 or a S2000. S2000 is a cool car. Stay away from the MX-5.

There is nothing wrong with an MX5, bang for buck for fun factor they are hard to beat.

Anyone under 165CM will enjoy a MX5 if they love a slow laggy convertible. At least it has roughly OK handling.

i'm 188cm if you must use cm, I remember my sisters del sol. Handled like crap because it had $50 tires on it and I was most comfortable with the roof off looking over the top of the windscreen.

There is a rule, if one is over 40 years old you cannot drive a convertible with the lid down.

ghettomaster: Op never mentioned his budget so...

Ummmm, Given the angle on the GT wing they must be getting in excess of 100KG of downforce at 100kph. Dat drag and fuel consumption. The cold air intake is done wrong. Who in hell needs 2 pod filters on that engine. Not to mention the second one doesnt have cold air in. The intake should be closed circuit so there isnt the chance of hot air leaking in. Those rims were stolen off an Estima or WRX from south Auckland. The colour is what you get after eating too much butter chicken. All around a car of cancer.
