Come On Mazda!

I love my MX5 so much that it pains me to publish this review of the new Sport Black L E by the straight-talking American team at “Fast Lane Daily”, but perhaps as a result Mazda will start to listen to their customers and produce proper Limited Editions of the world’s favourite sports car with real added quality, instead of just poorly considered cosmetic tweaks.

Early L Es had superchargers, much improved interiors, or great colours like the much loved yellow California. Now they increasingly seem to be an exercise in shifting unwanted models or components, instead of having genuine improvements and therefore being much sought after.

For example, the beautiful Kendo, which I like very much, is astonishingly only available with a five speed gearbox, even for the 2 ltr model. This latest offering, the Sport Black, is based on the MX5 GT, but has no performance enhancement, lacks style and is ridiculously expensive.

So come on Mazda, show some respect to the 900,00 drivers who love your car and start producing some really special limited editions!

Take a look at the review and let me know what you think.
