Default Hella Horns before and after (opinions)

I installed my Hella horns and I'm kinda on the fence with the red. I was considering painting the hella grilles black, but I'm not sure. What do you guys think looks better?

Looks pretty good to me.
plastidip colors might be fun to play with.

Black always looks good. Color matching also looks really good, so you might consider that too. I've ordered the white ones from subimods to match my ride.

Im leaving mine red because it goes well with the red calipers. I have always thought the red looks good on any subie, but the stealth look can be cool too.

I just color matched mine a few days ago, the red was getting a bit obnoxious looking for my taste.

Color match or black. Red doesn't go with blue in my opinion

If you didn't have yellow fogs I would say to keep it red. Two many colors going on now.

My phone takes crappy pics, and the lighting is weird, but it is a pretty close match to PSM. I used Quicksilver.

I have the red 'tones and yellow fog laminate on my black bugeye and it doesn't look bad to my eye. WRB adds another color to the mix, though, which might be too conflicting for some. Looks like a case of two external mods that aren't playing together so either paint the horns black or ditch the yellow, IMO.
