As a former Miata owner, I totally agree with your comments re the Miata.
Love my 2.8, but I'll be the first to confess that it's not nearly as sporting as a plain old Miata. I miss the lack of understeer, the nimble chuckability, the great shift action, the scream it made as it tore to its 7000 rpm redline.
I'll probably be able to fix some of these things in the aftermarket, but it does irk me that BMW doesn't offer a version of the Z3 which doesn't require so many fixes.
