I finally went and test drove one! A base model GT with a MT-82.

So here's my few thoughts.

I liked that even though the interior felt smaller it felt like everything on the center stack more in reach than in my car.
The light clutch was nice, once I got used to it. Mine felt very heavy when I was back in my car.

The ride was definitely much improved! It was firm but smooth, surprisingly firm for a base model. Although I wasn't pushing it in corners.
I really liked the seats! With the support those have its hardly worth getting Recaros.
Less road noise, almost too quiet, but good exhaust would fix that.
The shifter was nice and positive compared to the old one. Not quite as short of throws as my MGW obviously but much improved.
The ring to pull up to get into reverse is a better idea than pushing the shifter down, no accidentally going into reverse there.
And last of all I'm happy with my 3.73 gears! I didn't see on the sticker what this one had so I'm guessing 3.31. It didn't have the same 2nd gear pull that mine does.
