You are in the Mazda Miata
What is this discussion about?
Mazda MX-5 Miata, Convertible
Follow-Up Test: 2007 Mazda MX-5 Miata PRHT - After putting a quick thousand miles on a 2007 Mazda MX-5 Power Retractable Hardtop (PRHT), we think the company's estimate of a 20-30-percent take rate on this option is going to prove low (more)

Why not place an order now and your 07 MX-5 should be ready by February/March 2007. Almost all dealers seem to be waiting for the retractable roof version to trickle in, but I know most dealers are taking orders now to insure buyers have a car waiting for them in the spring. I assume at some point more MX-5 will hit dealer lots, but it is hard to say when and how many. I suggest you give yourself an early Christmas present at no cost since you only have to put serious money down when the Miata arrives in early 07.

Hard to say what availability will be. The PRHT is very new. You might consider buying in winter when the convertible market is soft. Spring is a little harder if availability is limited.
The Hillsboro dealer seems to be pretty good about pricing. Local Miata members have picked up 06's at invoice... When they were still a hot commodity.

intend to purchase a 2007 MX5 retractable roof Miata in March of 2007
If your in the Northeast buy the car in Jan. when you will get a great deal...if you wait until the spring you will pay more. we have the highest demand then and the least discounts.

I think getting bids in January is the best recommendation. I'm going to do this via the Internet. Anyone read "Confessions of a Car Salesman?" I'll put a deposit down, and will purchase in March '07.
#15 of 75 Retractable Hard Top Question
Oct 09, 2006 (3:50 am)
I was wondering if the MX-5 Grand Touring package comes with a retractable roof that that is insulated/or has a cloth interior? My understanding is that some retractable hard tops are strickly metal, but I believe the MX-5 hard top is covered with cloth on the inside? Do hard top interiors vary depending on what version of MX-5 is purchased?

I decided to spend the extra $$$ on the suspension package. Every article I read said the upgrade was well worth for the $500 extra cost.
I did look at your Mazda website and did not see any specifications on the interior roof of the hard top. You are probably correct about all hard tops being the same quality, but I am still wonder if there is a ceiling cloth interior/insulation that comes with all retractable hard tops.
I also think Mazda should offer the option of leather seats for the Sport. I belive you can only get leather on the Grand Touring. It will be interesting to see the the 07 hard top version of the Mazda competes with the Saturn Sky and the Solstice. My guess is the long term quality (of Mazda) will help it far outsell both American made cars.

I'm pretty sure the roof is insulated (padded).
I was one in Plano, TX the dealer. I e-mailed Mazda the same question.
