I find a lot of Japanese cars to be boring, but boring and POS are not the
same thing.

Anyway, I suspect the guy in the Miata didn't know how to drive.  I've
raced various cars in the Miata(including cars guaranteed to be faster than
your 4kq) and not had a problem.  Of course if it was raining, that's
different.  Or maybe the Miata was an automatic(a travesty if true).

Driving lights, to me, generally mean super high beams.  Some people get
PO'd if they see any extra lights so maybe this was the case.  Your
description makes them sound more reasonable(sorry 'bout the ahole comment).
