Thoughts on the color theme?

Just a little something I've been doing lately. Going for a unique look.

If you turned the red into blue, I think it might look better.

post a pic without so much editing for better analysis.. looks like a bright red, might be able to pull it off with a deep red not feeling it at all though.

edit: just noticed your username is stayclassy lol ironic

Not really feeling it. I'm all for red my favorite color but I think other accents would work better. Emblem isn't that bad. Also if your car was alittle more aggressive it could pull it off more

I'm ordering Unmitza V4s (Blackout) and splitters with a lip at the end of the month. Think that will make it work?

i think you should remove the red from the bumper and see how that looks.

Here's some of mine to help give ideas.

BBK is probably the biggest help with color themes..

^^^this. Learn from the best. And take the bumper rods off. Maybe add a small line at the bottom. Maybe pinstripe your lip but it depends on the lip too.

Headlights yes are a win, don't get splitters order a M-Sport front end to pull off the aggressive look. For the front end.

I agree with a few people that its a bit much. Maybe without the stripes on the grill would be perfect!
