    I might do the roof next. Its always good to break up too much of a colour with some black. Might sell it later as a limited edition Mirage black series !
    If I keep it the whole thing might end up black when the factory paint turns too ugly. Its only got 140000km on it so far with very minimal maintenance besides oil changes

    That's super uncanny I just did the same thing to mine, except I only blacked in the round bit where the fog light lives, handles look much better in black, same generation too, what are the chances

    I lost one of the round bits when I hit a low flying magpie at 100kmh. So I took the other one out and painted the surround. Looks good I think

    Yeah I agree, it's a bit odd they did it all the same colour, you would have thought I'd have cost more to make bits in every colour.

    I doubt it cost much at all there is almost no paint on the thing ! Super thin, I won't even machine polish it in case I wear out the paint.

    Yep, the whole car is a death trap in a crash. But it's lightweight so it goes well with only 1.2 litres

    Probably about that without the air-conditioning. But I sit on 120 or more. I do 300km round trip on freeway every week and pass everybody, its mad. No back seats in mine.
