I bought one of these in August 2006 after 5 happy years with a basic 1991 model. The car depreciated £1700 in the time that I owned it - you can't say that about many ither cars!
The Euphonic is for me one of the best special editions; I originally sought a silver Jasper Conran, but after seeing the Euphonic thought again.
I agree - not very fast, but that's not what open top motoring is about. Mine is a 1.8i (Titanium Grey) with the LSD; and very entertaining at that. Nothing to date has gone wrong, although the dealer had to fix the air conditioning before I'd part with my hard earned cash. The car has just passed it's first MOT with flying colours.
Would I recommend one? Damn right.
Try filling yours with Super Unleaded for a little extra poke.
Great fun, great economy, great residuals - what more can you ask?! If you're a bloke, buy one in grey or black.

Agree with all the previous comments. This is such a good car, particularly this model.
I owned a bog standard 1.6 for a couple of years, one of the first 2.5 's... that was good, but this 1.8 is a real joy.
If you want to drive with a smile on your face, even after the most challenging day at work, try one of these.

I have just purchased the Euphonic and am like a kid with a new toy.
It is in black and the black and red leather looks great. The stereo is fantastic with the hood down and hubby does not mind driving it either.
It had done 45000 with one owner and came with a years MOT. Having never had an MX5 before my previous cars (VW EOS and Nissan 350Z) I am really pleased. It looks sporty and though not as fast as the previous ones, still fun and economically good as retirement makes the cost very important.
I would recommend this Euphonic model if you can get one go for it.
