Default Black Car White front lip?

Havent seen a picture of this anywhere I've tried to visualize it but i cant see it yet. I love the white with black lip wondering if the opposite looks good as well.

I feel like that would look terrible.

Your logic makes sense. But, I imagine it would look pretty stupid.

one of the reasons you see a lot of black lips is due to the fact that there are a lot of lazy people that fdont want to paint them

I'm picturing it in my head and it seems rather distasteful. If I saw it in real life it would be different though.

Another reason is that your lip is the piece most likely to get scraped up and if you paint it any scratch will show.

I have a black lip on and my wrb , and even if i scrape it a little it won't show as much as if it were painted.

As for the white lip on black car I personally think it doesn't sound like a good idea. but if you decide to do it definitely post a picture, maybe it would change my outlook on that kind of combo. But do whatever makes you happy, doesn't really matter what people think as long as you like your own car and it's mods.

Just do it. Vinyl is magical. Wrap one real quick...don't like the results? Remove. No harm, no foul.

White lip on a black car will end up looking like an unpainted body kit. Namely:

Sure...except that's an ENTIRE bumper versus just the bottom portion. On a red car versus a black one. Totally the same, bruh!

It even has a hood scoop, in case you're wondering how it'd look on a subie

The Lowe's by my house now sells Plastidip in white. That would be your cheapest option.

Took the liberty of creating the idea in Forza Horizon.

I took a 2011 STi sedan and did it with the Chargespeed lip. Thought I might give you guys an idea of what that looks like. I'll also put one up of painted side skirts as well.



EDIT:
Chargespeed bottom line front lip and side skirt extensions in white on OBP:

It looks like it needs paint. I would rather try red on the front lip if you're going for that.

ummmm not a good idea. I think "black" lips are often picked for the CF look i guess, but when i see multi color cars my first thought is always, get to the body shop.
