or has anyone else noted the disarming similarity between the new MX5 and the Z3?

Mazda running out of inspiration perhaps?

Myfather in law just picked up his new MX5, limited edition RECARO model, I have to say I really like it!!

The colour is stunning in the flesh, looks grey / white / pearlescent all dependant on weather.

A few round our way, I actually really like them, just behind the 370Z, Z4 Coupe and TT TDI for me, but much cheaper

Must admit I saw the advert on the box the other day and did a double take. It does look good, and put a nice straight six under the lid..... :thumb:

I think it looks great, and not too expensive either.

It's just a shame they don't do a high power version, maybe turbocharged. Although road tests say the car is well balanced and doing that would spoil it.

I can see nothing that makes me think Z3.

I can see rear arches and rear 3/4 view looks a bit z' esque to me, maybe overall stance, but sharp edge styling, its not like Z3 yes.
