Default Too many colors? WRB WRX

I have a WRB WRX sedan, with the adorable red mudflaps. I was thinking white wheels, but also wanted to wrap the hood and roof to cover up some of the ugly scratches and chips that developed.

What color wheels? What color hood? At this point I have so many ideas on which way to go with it, just need a 3rd party opinion.

Carbon fiber would look the cleanest IMO.

I have my WRB STi hatch and I got the red mudflaps

I plan to go with carbon fiber wrap for the hood. Previous owner used cheap clear coat )):

White wheels would look sick. Like a Rota Grid

White wheels look horrendous, would go with some black or bronze wheels. A dark color scheme works very well with the WRB. But I also think that red flaps look stupid so my input may not be worth much.

If you do decide to go with white wheels I would recommend 10 spoke? at least 8. That's just my preference ^.^

Do what you feel is best ^.-

What year?

And it really doesn't matter what we think, the car is yours. The best thing to do would be browse the "Members Gallery" forum for ideas, yes this means it will take you some time and require footwork.

If you happen to play forza, its a great way to visually see how your car would look and if you like it before actually doin it.

This is true too.

But at the end of the day it's your car, it doesn't matter what other people think. You don't need to justify anything to anyone.

I know! It's terrible. Looks like garbage and it's almost embarrassing to drive like that.

It is a clear bra, if only he put the bra over the entire hood!
