I suppose that was inevitable at some point. Tacky, but inevitable. :roll:

Bit of an odd thing now, neither one nor 'tother.

From the front looks more like an M100.

I'll be the odd one (again) and say it's not bad.

You have to admit though, the MX-5 body shape does wear two-tone pretty well. I'm surprised that more owners haven't figured this out, at least over here in the states.

Edit: or put another way, its rounded shape combined with monochrome everything make it look like a big rolling jellybean rather than like a sporty roadster.
