We’d like to think that the 3 most commonly asked questions a Mazda MX-5 owner get are: “Is it a manual?”, “Is it a sports car?”, and “Can I ride shotgun?” But there are special people out there, envious speed-thirsty friends who have the balls to ask “Can I borrow your Miata?”

Seriously?

If you don’t know the answer to that, RealMazdaParts.com made this infographic to help you make an educated decision on what to do next. The easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide will take you through important YES/NO questions that must be asked first before you hand over the keys.

Some examples are ‘Is your Miata your daily driver?’, ‘Does your friend own “The Fast and the Furious” box set?’, and ‘Is your friend gainfully employed?’ If the answer to any question is a big Y-E-S, the chart clearly states that you should not lend your Miata, which happens to be one of the best lightweight rear-wheel-drive sports cars ever made.
