    Man, that thing is just repulsive!
    Actually there was someone on this board that drives a Multipla (I think it's what you're supposed to do with it once you manage to get inside with your eyes closed). Poor guy...

    HEHE talking of Miatas (MX-5s) - wait for a TV show about the 10 most popular sportscars or summit. It should be coming on discovery i think in America, not sure about over here. I went to watch some famous English Lord who is very into cars (he was driving a DB5 for the show) and when asked about the MX-5 he said he wouldn't be seen dead in one - well something to that effect anyway - we were all dying to burst out laughing (but the cameras were rolling)

    I think poeple in UK and US have different attitude over cars they drive in.

    And also just for the records, alot of young guys will not drive auto. Theres many reason for it why

    Alot will not buy diesel, again they have certain images. A friend got a company car which is a diesel. Everytime he used to parked up to pick us up from work we stick out our hard and scream TAXI!!!

    Hes cool with it and hate the TAXI sounds it makes. He now got citoen picasso, he call it school bus

    Again there nothing wrong in any cars, when too many poeple drives it, too many people doing stupid things in them, they create their own images.

    I remember back in the 90s, in UK we have this escort RS turbos, fiesta tubos. They have such a bad image, every kids will steal them and joyride them. What happen next? insurance start generalising and made the premium goes up like hell, they are not fast cars. They just happen to be the trend for joyriding and have that permanent image on them ever since.

    The point Im making is cars do have images and I think the UK and the US guys see it very differently.

    For examples, would you take some money out of the ATM machine when theres a big hooded up ugly looking guy following you? Sure you **** your pants and goes into the defence mode, but why? how do you know hes a mugger? he done nothing wrong to you? maybe you drop your wallet and wanted to hand it back to you? maybe he couldnt talk so he just follows you. The point Im making is generalisation do exist. I hate to do it but it happens. We all generalise over one thing atleast, thats a fact.

    Years ago, MX5 was cool, a male friend wanted to buy one when they first came out. It soon became a girly fashion that puts him off and never got to do it. He bought the MR2 hardtop instead, much of a male car. MX5, its the gay and girly images that put poeple off from buying them, at least in UK. Of course if you are gay and a pussy then it shouldnt be a problem

    Im not pointing these to you scouse, cant be bothered to quote what the other guys have said. They should know who im talking to

    I went to watch some famous English Lord who is very into cars (he was driving a DB5 for the show) and when asked about the MX-5 he said he wouldn't be seen dead in one - well something to that effect anyway - we were all dying to burst out laughing

    I can understand him and I bet alot of poeple do, the presenter must know about the MX5 image, reason why he asked Its really is a common knowledge in UK


    PS :
    Sorry to offend you red, I kept forgetting you are a female

    Hey man, thats not a very nice thing to say, you are offending some US guys in here. But I >>> with you anyway what the heck.

    How about an automatic, diesel engined MX5? Would an electric MX5 be better for you?

    The only aspect of owning any car that I consider bad for one's image is driving an auto.......

    Yet despite all your generalizations about it being girly and weak, I will bet you that Mazdaspeed MX5 will at worst give you a run for your money (against Chirs' or Cris' car) and at best... will humiliate you so that you will be crying yourself to sleep in the bathtub every night for the next year.
