Figure out a way to loose the chrome door handles. Paint them black or something.

EDIT: What's the sticker next to the front plate in the windshield? I'm also not a fan of the rectangular lights.

Not a fan of the rectangular lights in a rounded opening on a rounded car. They look like buck teeth that have never been brushed. Other than that, I like.

The only thing I'd want if it was mine, at the point you are at... is a rollbar. I just don't like convertibles without them (personal safety opinion)

Because nothing else is chrome. If he could get them black or flat it would smooth the look of the car.

Looks pretty good...undecided about the fog lights...look good on, trying to decide how the look otherwise lol.

I mean, they don't match. They need paint. You can open the hood and gas door if you want to brag about carbon fiber-dom. Black hard tops are cool though.

Personal taste I guess, but I like all my body panels to match, regardless of what their made off. You don't see anyone polishing miata hoods, and that's a cool metal.
