Welcome, your claim to ownership is pointless without a picture of proof.馃ぃ
Mine was Dec 22 baby and yours a full year since initial builds, you/we should be golden.馃

Xpel fusion full car, ceramic coating wheels, painting the calipers same color as the car, exterior glass coating, uv tint entire front windshield with darker strip on the top, tinting both front windows to match the rear, xpel film on center console and center display. We spoke about some kind of coating for the exterior plastic but undecided. Going to check it out this Sunday and see if I think it's worth it. You don't want to know how much... I tend to keep my cars for a very long time so hopefully this all holds up. Had my last vehicle for 14years and put 310k miles on it.

Welcome from another new PMG owner!

That is quite an extensive list but seeing that you keep your cars for so long, it is a very worthwhile investment. Interested to see the body colored calipers, where did you find caliper paint to match?

I didn't find it myself. Having it done using the paint code located on the driver's door sticker.

That's awesome. My guy also uses Xpel for everything. In the past he's used Gyeon Ceramic coating (surprisingly awesome) and then he shifted to Ceramic Pro (I did not like this coating as much) but now he uses Xpel Fusion.

I just had him do full Xpel XR Plus on windshield, sunroof, and all windows. It makes a huge difference. My guy usually hooks me up because I send him a lot of business. I also usually do not do full car PPF but if you keep your car that long it's totally worth it.

That's good to hear. Never had any of this done to any of my cars, was always on the fence on weather it was actually worth it. First brand new car for me so I figured I'd give it a shot. Definitely ain't cheap but hopefully worth it.

I had it applied on my 15 C7 8 years ago right after I purchased it. A few weeks later, a dump truck coming from a rock quarry forgot to close its tail gate and dumped rocks all the highway! I went from 5th gear to 3rd in a second and slowed down. Got to work and no scratches on the car but was covered in rock dust!

Love that blue! Nice touches under the hood and in the cabin too. Did the trim rings come in blue or did you add those?

Blue is the accent color on my Miata and I bought red vent rings that I painted blue to match parts in my engine bay.

Nice! The trims are aftermarket that I ordered from an online store. We actually bought the first gen Miata back in 1989(showing my age). It was a blue model and I believe it鈥檚 production number was around 3,300.
