Opinions on paint scheme!

I got a red 5th gen and planning it on getting it painted red again. I want to get the v section of the hood painted black and may or may not get the roof black! Need opinions... think it'll be too much and make it look ricey?

Re: Opinions on paint scheme!

i think it would look good if u got the v painted, roof and just the top of the trunk, otherwise just get it 1 color, carbonfiber hood would look better then 2 tone


my opinion

Re: Opinions on paint scheme!

I agree with the cf hood but I would leave the "v" section cf and paint the rest of the hood

Re: Opinions on paint scheme!

I've actually thought about doing a scheme like that before! I really like the idea. It would probably look good with a black lip kit too. Or go with the CF trunk and hood combo, that always looks dandy too.

Re: Opinions on paint scheme!

my friend Carlos actually has this scheme. but he has the carbon fiber hood/trunk with his roof painted black. it looks great to be honest. I was going to paint my hood body color and leave the middle carbon fiber. so definitely go with what you're planning, it won't be rice

Re: Opinions on paint scheme!

I think black would look good as far as rims go with your paint scheme but honestly without seeing it on the car it's hard to tell.
