I bought a miata as a daily driver to keep the miles down on the bimmer. after two weeks of driving the miata, I hop into my 330 and it feals like your grandfather's oldsmobile. then again, the miata is a base model with no a/c or power steering. - just a lonely old alternator belt. the new konisports and sway bars really tightened it up nicely. even with the crappy tiger paw tires on the car, I thin kI can get through my favorite back road (calaveras road) more quickly in the miata than with the bimmer. both cars are really fun.
