      I really do enjoy listening to that engine note. I like it more than the Borla exhaust on my FR-S.

      l like the road noise, cabin noise and wind noise... feels as if you are engaging with nature. But I am wondering on motorway after driving for hours does all that noise feel annoying and make you feel tired

      Thank you for the full demo....test drove one last weekend and I'm hooked. Should be purchasing in Feb. '17. I'm 50 yrs. old and this will be my first new car....I'm that impressed with the whole package that I want to maintain it from new.

      I have one question, does this car feel any "leak" of cold air while the top is down? How is the thermal isolation?

      What I like is that you can see the front of the car again. In the Miata NC it was so curved you had to guess, as opposed to the NB where you could see it.

      This car does not have a limited slip.  How does it do when pushed hard in a corner?  Does it have about the same amount of body roll as the previous gens?

    • Michael Godsey
      Michael Godsey In reply to Gerald Bennett

      Only the Club (middle version in the US) has limited slip with Bilstein shocks.  GT (highest trim with all the tech comfort goodies) does not offer LSD or the Bilstein.  Also, the Club offers optional BBS wheels and Brembo brakes.  GREAT setup and a GREAT track car (and everyday sunshine driving car)!

      Gerald Bennett In reply to Gerald Bennett

      You cannot get leather seating in the Club and Nav is $450.  Driving position is too far right so your knee rubs the trans tunnel and pedals are awkwardly placed.  Engine is whinny

      My only gripe is the delay between the gear physically being engaged and what it says on the dashboard, its about a 1 second delay to me it would drive me crazy lol..
