I added my two cents. I get tired of the same stupid reviewer complaints: manual top and trunk space. And there is no way the MX-5 performs better.

VERY nicely put!!!!! I would like to know just how many of those with the "miata out performs solstice/sky" crowd have actually owned both or even driven both.

I test drove several of both. The fit and finish of the miata is far superior as are many of the other options. The looks, ride, and performance category goes to the solstice/sky hands down.

Hey Ahnuld, that article SUCKED! Written by a Miata lover no less A Redline and a GXP deliver power and handling and the writer still says he prefers the under-powered Miata?!
