its £21,500 otr dude!

and to be honest its all down to personal feelings, some liked the understated look of the old carwhere as some will prefer the new more out there look, and also the interiour is horribe honestly is! its piano black with red dots, same goes for the half leather seats, black and red, a.k.a awefull :) however there is now a turbo boost read out aswell as alloy pedals and alloy gear knob, wich make it a little nicer i suppose  >:D

USED TO HAVE: MAZDA 3 1.6 SPORT NAV IN ALUMINUM WITH EIBACH SPRINGS AND CUSTOM CORKSPORT SRI INTAKE

NOW HAVE: 1. MX5 MK1 1.8 IN BRITISH RACING GREEN LOTS OF MODS

In white it will be alright

So good pics of a white one here, albeit it's the Mazdaspeed version rather than the MPS, albeit almost identical --> http://www.torontomazda3.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=35474

Theres also some good interior pics for those who you are yet to see the interior...

The first time i've seen one in white, and i'm impressed  :)

As i said it will be alrite in white, i havent really liked the look of it till iv seen it in that colour. I think that the tail lights should be tinted more black like my mps and the rear defuser thingy on the rear bumper should also be black, not white.

The seats in that car are discusting but the dials and plastics look very good.

Also that big grin isnt as bad as i thought it would be on the white version of the car, and i like that turbo psi reading aswell. :o :o

Great pics. Hate the seats. That steeringwheel looks like fighter jet!

There is a MK1 there with a great front bumper.

Yeah, with that bumper, side by side the old MPS looks much better than the new one... from the front at least.

I was in at SG Petch, Durham yesterday picking mine back up and they have a white new MPS in the showroom, I have to say that I am very impressed, it looks smart, had a sit in and good look round. Unfortunately at over 21K I wont be signing up on the line.

Just waiting for a drive of one now.

Be interesting to get your thoughts.

hmmmm, not exactly the praise the Focus, GTI and Megane seem to get.  Agree with the comments about the seats. Thought people on here said the new MPS was heavier as well. Still like the looks.

They say it needs less power...less is never better! More power is needed  >:D
