Those brakes don't look fundamentally that different from the ones on the current car.

I'd say this car is akin to the NB Miata. Same body lines as the original, different headlight/tailight and a few new lines, curves here and there.

You should have replied that the HVAC system needs a new huge fan that is powered by exhaust gases and directs air into the engine instead of the cabin.

Thanks for the advice!

I had it applied by an expert. I mostly just want to get rid of little imperfections like micro swirls and those tiny scratches that only show up in bright light.

A bit disappointed that they didn't at least attempt to replicate the fighter cockpit design from the MKIV and MKIII.

As expected it's a BMW interior.

Those wheels should look good after powercoating them to a solid colour.

Hate the current trend of every second Japanese car having two tone wheels.
