Ah! I knew your car looked familiar... but I didn't see the fatlace sticker on your diffuser so I wasn't sure if it was the same car.

Love it. Agree that some additional orange hints somewhere will make it pop.

I'd go with the orange and white roundels. The normal ones will clash with those wheels and forget the VMR caps - this is about the car, not the wheels.

I think orange on the center caps would be too much. I actually think the unfinished wheels (no caps) look alright. Also, the regular roundels might work because blue and orange are complementary colors (they don't clash).

I could see the orange mirror caps and scoops working, though.

agreed, blue and orange are complimentary however i liked the black and orange caps too.

and someone mentinoed an orange inlay on the mirrors, that would be neat to see, and definitely do the orange scoops!!!!!
