    I suspect it’s self harming having hit every branch on its way out of the ugly tree.

    Oh I know exactly what he’s on about, but I want to see him type it out for all to see:

    I refer to my little hairdressers’ Mazda MX5 as “The Roadster”.

    Go on Acme, do it. Type it out for all to see :D

    It's a Eunos Roadster. ;)

    If it were a UK car I'd call it the MX5.

    I just do it to push your buttons.

    Saw a black Senna when I was in Basildon. Probably the same one I'd guess!

    I saw a range rover today with red calipers, but the red calipers were transfers or stickers or something and they'd stuck them on the alloys.

    I was driving so couldn't get a pic but it was mental.

    No you don’t, you ain’t fooling anyone. You bought an MX5 but call it a Eunos Roadster because Japanese and scene.

    We’ve had this discussion before so all I’ll say is this:

    As long as it pulls all the fanny, who cares amirite? :D

    No, I bought a Eunos Roadster, and call it one because thats what it is. :D

    And damn right, drowning in it since I put that white bumper on. :p

    But seriously, I call it an MX5 really. Even though it isn't one. Its just easier. ;)

    Though in the US its still called a Miata MX5, they just ignore the MX5 bit.

    Every 18 year old buying an MX5 for bad skids (yo) calling it a Miata is infuriating

    As I'm viewing this on my phone, the edge of that sign was the edge of my screen, for second I thought you saw boasting about your boss owning a Skoda :p.
