OK...I am getting an 07 miata (or a boxster, I am not sure totally yet)
Anyways I want to know what are the pros and cons of a 5 speed and 6 speed?
A 5 speed would be better for low speed driving and faster accelerating and a 6 is better for hwy driving...?
Is this true?
Any input is appreciated.
Think the 6 speed is better for everything.
Although you will have more gears to shift, might get a little tired ahahha
6-speed is better all around.
6 speed for FTW!!!:driving:
I think that settles it.
Man, I am still wanting the lotus, but I've heard stories about them being parked and people will bump into them to parallel park and cause like 5,000 dollars in damages.
but thats because they arnt close to lotus garages, where parts are easier
to get! you know what i mean? where as in england, there are lots of lotus
dealers and i know where the factory is etc!
i dont like porsches, i dont know what you find apealling about them? theyre ugly and they sound like a bag of nails:laughing:
but i suppose parallel parking into aporsche wont cost as much in terms of damage??
They are very small, and fall right into the blind spot of many larger cars and SUVs. There are people out there who will mess with a nice car to feel better about themselves, as well.
Then again, I guess I can't worry about that stuff. Change how I live because there are some losers and curious people. That's not me. I've never done it before so why do it now..
I'm gonna try for the lotus
if you havent ever read jcutsh's long article on the miata, Id suggest you
I just remembered how good it was
I've read it. :)
I think I want a miata as a secondary car. Something I can be comfortable playing around with but is also fun and reliable.
The 6-speed version will obviously be better, but bear in mind that the sixth gear will only really be a cruising gear anyway, and as such wont make much difference untill you reach fairly high speeds...Great for econemy though!
I travel long distances often, though.,
Then it should suit you better!
