The cars is looking good but IMHO the black top and engine cover looks out of place. The car looks good in its original full Red colour but if you like it this way then thats what it sould be...and as a lot of others have said before me, Loose the stickers NOW. They just look very wannabe. otherwise lovely!! Enjoy.

Congratulations on your Mr2, those turbo Mr2's are fun to drive !!! This is the best gen Mr2, the latest one looks real ugly....

If i were you i would leave the whole car red and not mess with the two-tone paintjob (red and black). I would also go for tuner style wheels rather than chrome wheels, I believe chrome wheels look better on sedans.

There is a white Mr2 in my building here and the guy has a real simple bodykit which enhances the car's natural lines, the car is super-white and has gunmetal deep-dish 18" wheels. If i have a chance to i will take some pictures.

If you don't mind me asking how much did you pay for that car?

Man your car looks hot! I am going against the tide here, but honestly think that the black top looks awesome. But please change those chrome wheels and get rid of the stickers.

I do hope you are spending as much effort on bringing it up-to-date mechanically, as you are aesthetically. I repeat....this is the best looking MR2 generation and a well-maintained piece is blast to drive.

Congratulations. Best import bang for the buck.

Amazing MR2 dude!
Love the paint job, she looks amazing!!

Hope you bring her to one of the NCR-BHPians meet.
I bet all of us would be dying to meet the "lady in red".

@akshay: i tried reducing the contrast but the gaps inbetween the spokes became shabby..thats why i left the contrast untouched.

Have the mechanicals been sorted out yet ?? The last time I saw it there were some oil leaks which needed to be looked at. But having said that the car looks good except for the chrome wheels.

Cheers & enjoy the car ? Hope you still have it.
