PH2 Spiders have black door mirrors. Regardless of body colour... Mostly, I think. :mygrin1:

Every spider has black mirrors and windscreen surround

Timeline Yaroslav Bozhdynsky's Personal Website

In May 1998 the cars were revamped for the first time (Phase 2), mainly the interior was changed with new center console, painted letters on skirt seals, changed controls and switches arrangement and different instrument cluster with 'chrome' tubes. On the exterior main changes included chrome frame around the grille and color coded side skirts and bumpers. A new engine was introduced: 144 PS (106 kW; 142 hp) 1.8 Twin Spark, and some were changed: 2.0 Twin Spark gets Modular Intake Manifold with different length intake and different plastic cover. Power output of 2.0 TS was raised to 155 PS (114 kW; 153 hp). Engines changed engine management units and have a nomenclature of CF2. Dashboard was available in 2 new colours, in addition to the standard black: Red Style and Blue Style, and with it new colour coded upholstery and carpets. 3.0 24V got 6-speed manual gearbox as an option. The 2.0 V6 TB engine was now available for the Spider. Cars produced in 1998-2000 are M.Y. 1998.

Cheers, Jarek

To be honest, most cars have been "modified" a lot in the years and what was a P2 outside may be a P1 (or even P3 for the more adventurous!) so nothing can be taken for granted.....!

Well yes, but there are brochures to confirm, and i try to find as many sources as possible in my research.
The only thing that is constantly modified in my opinion, on the early cars, are the side skirts that were matt black earlier and officially only from 1998 were colour-coded.
