Given the MX5 has been designed as a drop top form day one, and not just have it's roof cut off (or being derived form a platform which underpins sedans as well), I don't think the fact you can let some sunshine in ruins it. However, it could do with a more interesting engine, but probably the Fiat version will rectify this (a 1750 TBi in the Mx5 could be a delight; That sound alone, that performance...)
