I'll second everything that Sue said, very much on target. I actually like the handling of the Miata better, much more "cart"-ish, but that can also get tiring after a while. The Z3 is great for everyday driving, long road trips, or zipping around town. And, since I often get stuck in creeping traffic at rush hour, the torque of the engine is fantastic. I can just leave it in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, even 4th(!) and just let it idle without trying to feather the clutch for stop and go traffic.
