Body coloured Maxton front and rear side splitters - can’t decide - need opinions/help lol

Post by Macfife » Sat Mar 17, 2018 9:19 am

Folks, need opinions and cannot decide whether to do the front and rear side Maxton splitters in red or black. Sitting in my garage until I decide.Image

My BMW m performance side skirts are body colour as works nicely with the side decals.

Thoughts were by keeping red then it is consistent but will it look daft as too much? Black will it work also?

Dilemma Image

Any pics or thoughts welcome.

I'd go black as you have a theme with grills and wheels. I've kept mine black on red as like the contrast.

Definitely black. What wheels and size you got on there? That looks fit.🖒

Cheers sir. My only bug bear is that the side skirts are red but I suppose the mperformance decal will keep the black theme.

Cheers pal. Just 405 18s that I used to use on my 4 GC so offset works nice. They are winters and hoping to take off soon but bloody snow here today!

Not sure on the 405m widths but get the tyres swapped over and keep the 436m for winters

With gloss black splitters fitted. Hopefully not taken it too far Image. I like but no more body mods. Thoughts?
