Default Red rally armors on a dgm hatch???

Ok everyone, I wanted to get your thoughts and if you have photos that would be awesome. Before you go telling me to search I have tried on this forum and all combos on Google and could only find a couple shots of a sedan.

I originally wanted the basic choice for the dgm which was black with red logos. What do you all think of going out of the box with red mud flaps??

2013 wrx hatch in dgm. I also have jdmfv carbon with red subaru emblem overlays and red wrx inlays in my side badges.

Thanks in advance for your input.

-Corey

It looks out of place, a friend has red on his dgm sedan and personally I don't think it looks good but he loves it. It's your car, do what you like to it.

If you want peoople to take this thread seriously, you should create a poll in a new thread (ditch this one) asking people should you do red flaps or not. and then ask for people to respond with their personal reasoning for their answer.

or just look at these picture below.... take a moment.... do you like it? THAN DO IT.

Thanks for the thoughts! The pics of the sedan I have seen and I like it but still hesitant. I do think it would look better on the sedan, just can't make up my mind.
Again, thank you all for your thoughts

I installed black RA flaps on my dgm yesterday. Had the same thought of red flaps but after all the pics I searched for none looked good imho. I do like red flaps on white hatches though.

Wow this is a first!! Haha I was surprised it was like the first thing ever that I couldn't find on google. This pic looks good IMO. However I will definitely keep looking to try and find more angles. Thanks for the find!!!

I agree that's what got me looking into the red flaps, it appears very uncommon to put them on a dgm which is all the more reason for me to do it haha

red flaps look terrible. MAYBE on a red car, but even then i dont know. In my opinion, it takes away from everything someone looks at when they see our cars. it's an eye sore.
