You have learned fast. And what you say is in the pricing.

I would not buy unless your dealer is very close to home.

You cannot toss this car around like the Miata

UPDATE:

First of all, a BIG thank you to everyone for the feedback and advice, I really appreciate it. I've decided to decline on purchasing the V6S. I think I was trying to make it work, but in the end it did not tick off a lot of the things I really wanted, felt like I was settling because it's pretty hard to find a low mileage, M/T, F-Type that was CPO'd. This forum and you folks have been awesome and even though I may not own a Jaguar (yet), I think I'll be sticking around, hope you all don't mind

Ha, this is bizarre: I just traded in my miata for a manual v6s.

However, unlike you, I had a long time to think about it (I got to drive a similar spec f type last August).

I loved the heck out of my miata. Fun on wheels. However, it had its limitations (power and comfort being the standouts, both addressed by the f type). I'm planning to pick up another down the road, when I have space for it and time to play with it.

I do miss the lightness, the "tossability", and the shifter (that sweet, sweet shifter).

I kept my CaymanS because I love everything about the driving experience and like the look. I purchased the R because I love the look and like how it drives.

Forged wheels, 2pc rotors and a lithium battery will address 140 lbs of the weight issue and the short shifter will get you much closer to the Miata feel.

Don't forget about pulling out half of your spark plugs so it runs on few cylinders, otherwise you won't get that authentic Miata feel of flooring the accelerator and nothing happens.
