I currently own an NC MX 5, and I am hoping (planning) on buying the 124 Abarth, but I haven't been able to drive a 124 manual yet -- my dealer only has autos. I drove the ND MX 5 today, and I was shocked by the electrically powered automatic steering. In my NC, there is a good feel to the wheel. When you turn the car you feel a little resistance and feedback. In the ND today, it was like you were activating a switch -- turn the wheel a little and the car turns but no feel, no feedback. I'm worried that the 124 has the ND steering, and I haven't found any real discussion about it online. Can anyone help?
