My daughter just bought a new 2013 Miata Club with fold down hard top. It is a 6 spd stick of course. It will be her DD. She has my old 2005 Elise for fun. It is a really nice car, love the gear box. It is odd that you can't get Blue tooth with it. We had it installed aftermarket with a Magnaflow exhaust. It was very quiet. By the way I had a 1974 RX-3 and a 1980 RX-7 + a 1983 RX-7 GSLSE way back. Great cars and fun to drive.Great list, although I am not a Honda fan. It's very likely I will purchase an Evora S and a Mazda3 (for my daughter) in 2014. That will be my 6th Mazda purchase.
