mx5 as a daily driver?
Posted 28 July 2009 - 01:18 PM
I am after some advice from MX5 owners (past or present). I am considering buying an mx5 as a daily driver but am concerned about it being a convertible. Things like the extra noise, lack of security, rain. What is it like using an mx5 as daily transport? Is it negligible? Is it much noisier, how well does the soft top keep rain out? How long does the soft top they last?
I would appreciate any advice/experiences you can share about using an mx5 as a daily car.

the older ones are pretty expensive for what they are (most 89 - 92 models are asking around $12k with high kms), but the newer ones aren't much more (about $14k for a 94 - 96 with the 1.8).
also definitely get the 1.8, i've driven two 1.8s and one 1.6 and the 1.6 had crap brakes and had trouble going up hills

if you do get one, this will happen!
i DD'd mine for a while, now i bought something more economical, as the build for the 5 is starting to get a little crazy.
