These are the wheels I'm going to order for the spring. I already have the matte black grills. You guys think I should do anything else. I was thinking about doing a black overlay on the hood also.

paint the side mirrors black as well, and tint it out.

My car is tinted, and I've thought about going black with the mirrors, but I like them blue.

If it had a CF overlay to match the fade on the trunk, that would be pretty damn disgusting.

I don't think I'd ever go over the emblem, but I could change the emblems to

i normally think of matte and flat as the same- satin as having a little gloss- i would try to match whatever finish your wheels have.

maybe i have my wording wrong but like a semi-gloss. vinyl isn't crazy expensive; if you end up not liking it or getting bored just take it off.

Most likely would go to extreme graphics for this.

i dunno about sticker dude

but personally I have had excellent luck and work done by road rage

they wrap boats for us quite often, and their work is second to none, and totally reasonable as well.

Wheels look awesome! Go with the black stripe, I would have a gloss if using vinyl. I would leave the mirrors blue. Gonna look bad ass.

Change the emblems, but I wouldnt do the stripe. If you had a CF hood and painted it like that it would look good. IMO vinyl will just look cheap, and it will look odd since you have the CF roof then a gloss black hood.

Hmm, maybe do the stripe, but have it start and follow the edges of the hood bulge.
