I really, really like these. take the mx5 and dial it all up a notch = what's not to love? I think they just look bloody brilliant

After a year I still sneak a peak through the front window, it does look great. Not keen on the ones with heritage look with black bonnet and boot, spoils the lines and Italian beauty.

Looks great and like others, I do prefer it to the mx5. However, it's the first time I've noticed the front bumper shutline halfway up the wing. Perhaps it's emphasised by your photo or the light colour of the car, but it looks a bit odd and not very well integrated?

The colour (Portogallo Grey) is quite dark so not that. I think it’s the angle of the shot, the shut lines on my other cars are also quite prominent from that angle.

However, there is always going to be a less integrated look a the body is shared across manufacturers. This is an MX5 with a more aggressive Abarth body.
