Red side markers/gills on SG E92?

Just wanted to get a feel from folks out there. I want to replace the cheapish looking chrome side gills. It seems like most are going with CF, body matched, or matte black. Has anyone considered something like Melbourne Red gills as a complementary color to the Space Gray? Too ricer?

Personally, I wouldn't go with red on the SG, but I'm sure you could find a color to compliment it.

rldzhao's M3 is JzB with red gills, and it looks really stunning in person:




Any other colors on the car? BBK?

If you've got other red accents, like red calipers and maybe red roundel wheel caps ...it'd look nice I reckon.

Havent seen this. Not as "subtle" as I would have imagined. They really pop against the JB. can't think of a color other than red that would compliment SG.

Well, I personally think nothing looks sicker than red Brembos calipers peeking through the wheels (have to save my pennies for that one) but until then, red gills are worth a shot. Thanks for the input guys.
