Personally I think the Del Sol is more of a chick car than the miata. I might buy the one here since I can count on it being more reliable than the shitty '92 citroens and seats.

Where I live, every del sol is pretty riced out. Although I think they have potential, it's hard to invision it for me. Except for one local delsol that's making about 550whp. But I don't know if that counts

As a Del Sol owner, I am a little partial. But I always had my eye out for a BRG NA. I like both, and hopefully one day, I will add said NA to my stable of cars.

My Sister had a Del Sol that was a manual and she liked it. I like them but I don't think I would want one after owning 2 Miatas.

My GF had a base Del Sol. God that thing could not get out of it's own way. Other than that, I love them. Great ergonomics, light, fun FWD car.

Definitely not as much as a performer as a Miata though...

The Del Sol seems like it has very low performance. The one I drove was slower than my NA 1.6 and understeered like crazy! They also aren't a true convertible. They're like a targa...

never driven one but i can believe that they understeer. especially under throttle. they have the same suspension setup as the miata. double wishbone all 4 corners and theyre similarly sized. they also have more power than the miata. the Si version at least. the targa tops are pretty cool. but im a sucker for stuff like that. i would love to track one. :)

Got a new del sol in 93, loved the car. yes it's slow, but it had other things going for it. 38mpg, a huge trunk, and insurance classified it as a regular honda civic. It was about as close as you can get to a practical 2 seater.

nothin gets bitches like the trans-top...

i am die-hard honda fanboi. would love a green or blue del sol VTEC and do the trans-top. it's expensive. it's heavy. but so worth it for a nice daily..

i'm sure if you actually spent some time on the suspension they could handle. not quite like a miata, but still handle well enough for some back road fun..
