stock amber > black hole look

i suggest either a color-matched white or the "clear" reflector on a white car.

I always prefer body color reflectors but black reflectors don't look bad on AW especially with your black wheels.

body color over that black thing any day. even clear reflectors on white would have been better.

I prefer white but black doesn't look bad either. I would also paint your break calipers black.

Looks like it's missing something.

Colormatched would have been better.


Then again, your car your choices.

to echo what has been said several times, i think color matched would look better... well better is subjectve so maybe "cleaner" is a more appropriate term. i just like the clean look but i could see with your black wheels if you're going for that sort of look.

either way, good stuff man.
