CBP CTR. Advice wanted

Hi guys, I have had the car for just over two years now, and wanted to change a few things with the look of it and ride. So I recently had the FRS and 15mm Eibachs fitted, then decided I wanted to change the colour of the rims. Im undecided as to whether I should get the centre caps done as well and get the red lip done too. I have added a picture of when I had red lip and standard colour of rim and the new black colour. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks

The red lip on the black alloys would look good and stand out bit better.

Thanks mate, will try that out and see how they look. Not bad for a DIY job I guess

I completely agree with you. But the way I done it was quite easy. It was intact red stickers for the rims which worked out quite well as I could remove them if I wish. They were quite durable and with stood months of washing. Peeling them off took a bit of effort so I will probably go down that route again as I can change them quite quickly.

The same applies with the black colour of my rims. I sprayed them myself and it cost me £15 and the best thing about it, is when I get bored with it I can remove it (not so easily) but still looks professionally done.
