I'm thinking about getting into a droptop in a little while, and these two have ended up at the top of my list. Both are newish, can be had for ~ 20k (1st gen S2k, not the new one). I used to have an Integra Type R, which sold me on Honda motors, gearboxes, and reliability, but the Masdaspeed is newer, lighter, with more easily available hp. This wont be my daily, but I want something reliable enough to act as thus. Both are 6 speeds with great gearboxes, low weight, balanced rwd with lsd, nifty interiors, get decent mileage. VTEC+9K rpms is intoxicating, but then again, so is b00st... Any thoughts on the two?
