I too changed from an mx5 to a GT 1.9 jdtm 6 months ago.
In my opinion the GT is more classy, safe, powerful, practical, comfortable, stylish and fuel efficient. The chassis is nearly as good as the mx-5. It is a car that will always need to be carefully serviced, however.
The mx-5 was much cheaper to run (except fuel) and far more easier to work on. If the cambelt snapped, you towed it home and fitted another. I miss that aspect.
Enjoy your new beauty!
