Yes...to red mirrors...IF

1)Your car is a dark color, helps with the contrast

2)You have other red pieces to compliment the mirrors, and it seems you do (red scoops, coral red interior)

IMO the most important of the 3 criteria
3)Your car is aggressively modded in terms of exterior pieces (rims, lips, bumpers, dropped, etc) so that the red mirrors act as a complimentary piece to the rest of the car...if your car is just bone stock the red mirrors will stand out way too much and look out of place compared to the rest of the car...

Creaminz car as example of doing it right, his ride is sick as F!!!!

I say do the brakes and mirrors red! If you don't like the red mirrors you can always have them painted black.

brakes yes, mirrors no.

I voted yes though. Because if you wrap the mirrors, you can always take it off...
