One route is '94ish-'97 body style Miata (dislike current gen interior - v plasticky, kiddie oriented; and the rounded-off body style in the interim too bland). What a joy to zip around! Also less than half the $ than a TT, but I do feel like I could be killed at any minute :o) Do like the Miata reliability and simplicity - did I mention the driving? :o)
The TT is a *machine*. What gadgets other than standard ABS/ESP/Haldex fare? Feels more like a (crashworthy) nimble cruiser w/ gobs of power, vs. the go-kart Miata experience. The TT interior ergonomics & quality are among the few that don't make me bolt for the door and get back in the old C900 - heck I think they're great. The mechanical/electronic reliability, however, is spotty and that's frustrating for a ~$40k car. But, to be real, is it any different w/ a '03 9-3SS or upcoming cvt? - prob not.
