In June 2017, a repaint was commissioned at a cost of $6k with one layer of clear coat applied over five coats ofDeep Sea Blue. The Ireland Engineering fender flares, Turbo front spoiler, and custom fiberglass side skirts were painted to match. A slim rear bumper has replaced the larger US market version and has been painted black.
The headlights, indicators, and taillights have been replaced with OEM units, and a locking gas cap was added. A new windshield was installed, and a pair of uninstalled wipers and spray nozzles come with the car. The wiring is in place for a washer reservoir. The side and rear windows have a blue mirrored tint that is said to provide 90% heat reflection.

A set of 15×8″ F1R wheels with a +0 ET offset have BMW center caps and wear Dunlop Direzza tires with less than 4k miles of use. The turning radius is said to be limited due to the wider tires in front.Inside, the cabin has been redone with new Sparco R100 seats that are attached to OEM adjustable sliders. The seats have reclining back rests and 5-point harnesses. Additionally, new black door panels with blue stitching were added along with a new black carpet kit and white headliner. The rear seat has been replaced with carpeted boards.
Records show the wooden Nardi steering wheel cost over $1k, and a new wooden shift knob was also fitted. A carbon fiberemergency brake surround and center console have been installed, the later fitted with VDOgauges, three switches, and a hazard light switch. The stock gauges in the instrument panel work, and the odometer shows53,365 miles. There are no air conditioning or sound systems.
