I'd like to see black trim and side skirts to match the look of the car.

Or at least paint the lip white, but everybody that knows that I like black lips, trim & skirts.

Contrast is key

You think about painting that hood to match your car? IDK Id rock it if it was a stock style hood in carbon.

I like the hood the way it is, I just hate seeing painted moulding & skirts on red or white 5th Gens...

I don't have the si's anymore. just the rotas.

i have gotten mixed feelings about the hood. some people like it some people don't like it. i do not mind the hood but i rather have an OEM style one. so it will give the car a cleaner look.

i am thinking of re-painting the car maybe a burnt orange. so maybe this time i will go with black trim or keep it painted :D

then maybe do something with the motor. so it wont be so dang slow lol

Looks better on the Si's in my opinion. Also, I don't really like the clear corners you have. It doesn't really flow with the rest of the car to me. The hood isn't bad. If you go turbo it may even help with the higher engine bay temp. I'm with Jeezy on the side skirts, but I don't mind the door trim being paint matched...but the side skirts and the bottom of the rear bumper being color matched just doesn't look right to me...unless you do it with EK side skirts, and then it still looks a little wierd...I'm back and forth about it. But overall, I think that's a pretty good lookin coupe!!

x2 dude. Solid white looks....weird...but good??? I unno I'm mixed. Those clears do like a little off...im thinkin they are APC clears? I use to have some on my 93 FW EJ1...try to find some stock clears. and have you ever looked at getting the red/clear tails? clear on top, red on bottom. IMO they look SOOOOOO good on white coupes.

When you say you are going to get an OEM style hood...are you meaning a CF OEM style?

What do you mean by a d series can run good when tuned rite?

For the corners comment i am looking to pick up some jdm smoked amber's. Just haven't got around to buying them yet. also yes i have looked into the red & white tails. i think they look badass. i want to grab a set once i get my corners.

When talking about OEM style i am referring to stock(smooth) look but just carbon fiber.

I got to looking at pictures and my car would look way way better with stock black side skirts.

keep the good and bad comments coming. i love input so i can get ideas on what i can do to improve the look of my car. Thanks alot guys
