PAINT THEM SILVER.

I hate to sound like a pretentious bag of douche, (hint, that means I'm probably going to sound like a pretentious bag of douche) but the white looks like rice, the teal looks rice, and the wheels look too big for the car (are they 18's?). Thankfully you took that STi wing off because honestly, it looked like too boy-racer, especially when combined with the black hood scoop and blacked out corner markers.

Now the reason I say silver (as apposed to gunmetal) is because I had factory gunmetal rims on my SVT focus many moons ago and they were impossible to keep clean.

Badge-less/wingless is the way to go, silver wheels for ease of maintenance and less boy-racer looking.

I remember a time not to long ago when I had a loud-as-heck bright red 5.0 fox mustang with chrome cobra-r wheels; it did nothing but attract the wrong kind of attention, even when mildly lumping down main street at a crawl (see aggressive camshaft).

Crap I'm old. I don't want to stifle your personal creativity, I'm just providing the opinion of a guy who not too long ago was in high school and spent a lot of time and money wrenching on cars and almost as much time and money dealing with the repercussions of my actions partially because I hung a loud and bright red sign around my neck and partially because my right foot used to be made of depleted uranium; I'm glad I grew up.

Sorry about the egging, kids in high school are pretty much all morons (I know I was, and everyone I knew was too) and they have a hard time respecting other peoples property.
