Original, no question. Coloured may look better on another colour Civic, but not silver.

Eeahhh.. Silver all the way, as they come from the factory.

Non of the boyracer colours keep it as you bought it ..

If you paint them the paint will eventually come off in places and then look a mess...

Definitely red - I have it and it looks fine
However, it's Blueish Silver, red would fit to Alabaster as well.

If you are after a sporty look red would look good against silver. I have left mine the original colour though and think they look good too.

ehehehe, fluorescent green , too much contrast whit silver.

I like to have a soft appearance.

Finally its a battle for red and gold, more people suggest red, becouse its the racing color.
I have a type s and not have many horses and for this i prefer gold i think.
