I caught that on Leftlanenews earlier today, I think they have a slightly larger view of that picture, you can see the wheels better.

I like the wheels a lot, they look like 17s. Looks like a winner.

As I keep saying, the right wheels make all the difference.

I dunno, I kind of like it. I'm guessing it will look even better with the top down.

The rear window seems very small, but maybe it's just the angle the photo was taken from...

Nope. All the spy photos show a tiny rear window, too. All the more reason to put your top down at every possible opportunity! :biggrin:

haha, good point. We already have one convertible in the family so I will end up opting for the hardtop version, but the convertible does look sharp.

How are you liking that MX-5? I've owned two Miatas and loved them both.

If you're looking for a fun, but fairly economical ride, the MX-5 is hard to beat.

I don't like it. The hood looks like the hood of an oldtimer.

Going to the stick with the coupe for sure unless the 135 looks different!

That's hurting my eyes. Other pics make the rear window look like glass. That looks like plastic in this pic. Holy blindspot, Batman. It's a damn small window too. Also, the fit n finish around the driver's window leaves a lot to be desired.

I'm not a vert guy, but that truly is an ugly top--hopefully it is only preproduction.
