    As the mummy of retired greyhound, I'm with the dog any day. Just hope that pretty girl enjoyed a happy retirement and wasn't shot or something.

    I never enjoyed the mk3 if I am honest, my dad has a 2012 2.0 and it just doesn't feel like the old one, it just feels to built up, too much like a 'normal' car when compared to the NA and NB which both had that rattly go kart feel that made the 5 so famous. Not to mention the late model mk3s where pushing 1250kg over the NA/NBs ~1050kg

    The drawback to the mx-5 is that hyenas understeer. Classic top gear stuff this is.

    this is meant to be bigger car to the nbfl it replaced but the inferior is more cramp ! The boot is smaller . my crutches no longer fit in the boot so the mk3 or NC is so far.
