I can't wait until these are released in the States. I have been eyeballing these for over a year now, and it sounds like we will getting them for the 2007 model year (just over a calendar year from now). I am absolutely in love with the Roadster. Great looking car, and 55mpg combined city/hwy! The 2 and 4 door models look great, too, and cheap, plus up to 70mpg hwy! I'm thinking about trying to import one from Canada, (I live about 3 hours from Windsor) but from what I can see, they only have deisel models there? Is that incorrect? What I wanted to ask is if any of you have one, how do you like it? Do they drive well? Do they get the advertised 50-60mpg? How are they in snow/wet conditions? How about taller drivers? I'm 6'2", not huge, but long legs, and I don't fit will in a Mazda Miata, for example. How is the SmartShift electronic manual trans? For price, I checked the UK and Canadian prices, but wondered if sticker prices on UK cars included your guys taxes (VAT?)? Also note, that I am not some cranky Yank who is tired of filling up his truck now that gas is over $3/gallon! I have driven a small car for YEARS, and I get 30mpg, which is pretty durn good in the US. I am always looking for ways to save energy, and my next car will be something that gets 50mpg, something I've seen since gas was $2/gallon.
