I think I'm going to do LM's in diamond black with red caps OR 19" HRE P43SC's

I absolutely love how they look on your car, but I think with my color and dark highlights, they won't look that great. See my post above.

I'm still thinking about it, but right now in my life I have zero free time to cruise around, and my commute is all city and no highway with the max speed limit at 45mph. So N/A mods are good enough for now, I can barely exploit my car as it, so 100+ extra who for $9000+ isn't worth it to me right now. Maybe once my life gets a little less hectic I'll pull the trigger (maybe over this winter).
I know what you mean about making sure you like them from every angle. That is the #1 reason why I don't have BBS FI's on my car. I haven't convinced myself I like their look at every angle (especially in silver). Having said that, you really cannot go wrong with LM's vs LM-R's. I do "love" my LM-R's from every angle. I think they would look sick on MR, personally, but bapesta's photo is one of the best ones out there. They look amazing on his amazing car. The FI's look good on it too.
