Youíre right though the RF is so damn cool, and you get a convertible and a fixed roof. I donít care about the extra weight.

I also forgot to mention the MR2ís targa top. I donít know why but I love targa tops. I would seriously consider trading in my FR-S for a removable roof 86.

I too am 6'2 with a 34"inseam and the MX-5 was very cramped for me. My FRS is very comfortable and much less confining. If more leg room was provided the choice between those cars would have been much harder for me.

Iím so glad Toyota and Subaru designed the twins to have more legroom. I even use the mini backseats to hold things like a backpack or shopping bag. You canít do that in the MX-5 either.
There is one car I would be ok with being a little uncomfortable in, an S2000. I came really close to buying one several years ago, but got a WRX for more space.

Dropping the price to $22,000 as well. That way they can sell millions of them. There will be more on the road than Mustangs.
