Very nice looking Mx-5 there, seems to be in good condition. I think it is the best suited sports car for our roads. Nippy performance, good ground clearence, compact in size yet a head turner.

Only its girly image is making it a bit unpopular here.

That's a sweet car. Handles brilliantly too. All those detractors just don't know how to drive one straight.

How about a turbo RX-7 engine in an MX-5?!

absolutely viper... i have a similar car in my garage and its a mover...well atleast mine is with a remapped chip and a minor soup-up in the UK, sports exhaust. K&N filter, itl eat any vtec for breakfast and wont even burp.... sounds and handles like a peach. Most of the guys talkin against it wont be able to handl it in its stock avtaar too i bet.

Not fair, V-16. You can't compare a FWD 4-door to this!

But yes, it is one of my all-time favourites. Yours should easily put out over 150 bhp. We should meet up when I come to Mumbai
