Mazda MX-5 1.8i Sport Isn't it typical the day I take delivery of a Mazda MX-5 it rains after weeks of glorious sunshine! The car has been around for so long that I had become a little complacent about it however, when it finally did stop raining and I had the opportunity to give it a spin around the block I was smitten and my spin around the block turned into a day out.

Isn't it typical the day I take delivery of a Mazda MX-5 it rains after weeks of glorious sunshine!

The car has been around for so long that I had become a little complacent about it however, when it finally did stop raining and I had the opportunity to give it a spin around the block I was smitten and my spin around the block turned into a day out. This car turns even the most mundane trip into a fun driving experience - it is truly superb!
