one of the members on here had his m3 mirrors painted/vinyled red and well, most weren't a fan. I think he had red scoops like yourself but they did stick out a bit.

I'm for keeping them black

I think red brakes would be fine, but I'm not a big fan of the red mirrors idea.

How are you going to do the brakes without voiding the warranty? Let me know, because I want to do the same!

I want something like this too..
