it's small and cute but not a girls car. I would get the new coupe but it's kinda pricey right.

another thing to add, the S w/ JCW exhaust, is prob one of the best sounding 4cyl I've heard. Any car that sounds like that cant be a girly car

What a dumb reasoning. Because a gay man said it was cute you didn't buy it? What if a gay man says that everything in GQ is hot? You won't buy it?

Btw, it's Miata, not Miatta. And there are probably more women that have a 135i than a JCW.

Hey he called my 135I handsome!
I had a choice rock a "cute" car or a "handsome" car.
I went for a car that fit me better...after all I am very handsome!

And I said the Miatttttta was a lesbian car. But it appears that the Mini has a good lesbian attraction. No clue why? Maybe it's the hatch back where they can put their large breed dog and tent for then they go to Lillith fair!

It's funny lesbians like me but I don't have any lesbian friends.....they just don't bring anything to the table. All my gay friends are bartenders in NYC so......

Not in my opinion. Have you seen some of the mini stuff Helix does? www.helix13.com
The twin-charged ones are bad ass (supercharged+turbocharged).

Short answer is yes, it's a girls car.

JCW is the least feminine of the lineup, but even then, the power is being delivered to the wrong end of the car. Torque steer is not your friend. Adding more forced induction is not badass when weight transfer off the drive wheels under acceleration limits your ability to convert that boost into real speed. Physics wins every time.

This is why a Miata is NOT a chick car, even tho some foolishly think it is. Of course, that means a 135 is not a chick car either.
