    Yes, my interior is Kertrel Tan, a rather hard color to copy, and the Colourlock dye matched perfectly. I had a scratch on the side of the driver's seat that resulted from a watchband rubbing against the leather when engaging and releasing the hand brake which I understand is a common issue due to the location of the brake handle. The fix took me about 5 minutes (I used a Qtip) and the scratch is still invisible. Great product. They have videos for more extensive projects, but mine was quite simple.

    How long ago did you do the treatment?

    Thank you, that's helpful to know. I personally don't mind it but someone else might want a non-$9k solution.

    Much appreciated.

    Passenger side seems not too bad, but now I can't stop wanting to find out what the airbag looks like deployed. That metal sheet that sits over it is very confusing.

    After almost 3 years of having the car, hasn't gotten old. The shape, the paintjob- the sterling silver wings... it's a perfect example of a "sports car in a tuxedo".

    Dayummmmm! That is a nice looking car! What I wouldn't give to have a bigger garage! And in SoCal, no less!

    Stunning car. I’m waiting for my stupid house to sell before deciding what to buy, and an $88k vantage wasn’t at the top of my mind (especially in silver over black) but damn if this isn’t gorgeous. Making me think twice. GLWS, I’m guessing it’ll be gone before I could afford it.

    Best offer is still (slightly) shy of asking price, so it's still up for grabs!

    //edit

    ...and to be frank, most importantly to me is that this car goes to someone who will appreciate it. It's easy to sell it for some price but knowing it's in good hands takes more work.

    Hmmm... how about this. I’ll make you an offer you can’t refuse. Sell it to me, for less money than that, I’ll take delivery now, and I’ll pay you “eventually” but I PROMISE to give it an extremely loving home. I’ll throw in my RX-8 as a deposit! Compression tested every year :D
    I won’t smoke in it either but I did promise a friend he could do “juuuuust a little cocaine” in whatever I end up with. How can you say no to that?!?!

    @Marko Mandaric i suspect a mod took this a little too seriously, but according to a little known FChat rule it’s a binding deal now. Surprising I know but this is why I always read the TOS before I click agree!
    Just let me know when I can come pick it up. I’ll bring the Mazda and keys, and will try to get it detailed first (time permitting though)

    @ylshih can you please change back the posting to “for sale”, a mod mistook the joking sarcasm a commenter and I were having as a factual sale.

    Hope everyone had a good weekend! Car is still available. Thank you!

    Nice car and a second recommendation for Colourlock dye to repair the leather wear. I had a few minor spots like that in the Red Fox leather in my Vantage and the Colourlock dye fixed it perfectly, flawlessly, invisibly, and durably a year ago, for about $50 and 10 minutes of effort.
