Not too many of them around probably due to the fact that it is crazy what you guys have to pay for one down there!

It's all relative. Australia's PPP is much higher than USA. We also make more for the same job, so cars and basically everything else (big mac index) are relatively more expensive, but at the end of the day it's not if you know what I mean.

I'd say people all over the world who buys the car probably are in the same age group and have similar jobs/lifestyle.

Yeah...I am sure. It just scares me when I see how many US dollars it cost for the car down there and I see I could buy a Cayman S for that here...freaks me out!

half an inch? But I'm being very careful because it's a new car.

Didn't know the Megan RS is available in Australia. It is said to be quite a beast. Wish I could try it to wash the insult left in my memory by my "Super 5" of old

So just installed the carbon mirror caps from RW Carbon.

Ordered late thursday night and received in Australia on Monday. So very very quick delivery!! Great service as well.

The mirrors are almost perfect, slight blemish (scratch line within the carbon), noticeable close up but not so much from far away.

Carbon great match with the MP rear spoiler. That was one of the most important thing for me.

It was an easy installation, took about 5 minutes.

Here are some pics.
