Chrome – The Thing or Just Bling?

My car was a showroom demonstrator for the launch of the latest model in April last year and it had lots of extras fitted, including chrome door handles, indicator bezels, quarterlight pillars and windscreen surround. Now, chrome is a very sensitive subject for many MX5 drivers, with the purists howling in horror at the thought of any adornment not fitted as standard. However, I think that, in moderation, a bitof the shiny stuff looks good. There is a huge range of  high quality chrome fittings  on sale at your local Mazda dealer and even more at MX5 Parts, the hard thing is to know when to stop. I was sorely tempted by the Mazda manufactured fuel filler cap, but a stern look from my friendly salesman told me it would be a step too far. However, I still wonder if it might look great…

Really you can do whatever takes your fancy, apparently MX5 owners buy more accessories for their cars than any other make or model and whilst I would personally draw the line at chrome washer jet covers, hey, if it feels good, do it!
