Help me decide.. Black or Red Volk decal?

A month ago I ordered new Volk TE37SL decals in both gloss black and gloss red (tough decision) to replace my old Volks decals. Knowing that I daily drive my M3, is the red decal too over the top given the car already has red AP Racing BBK? I love the look but the car already gets enough attention...not sure I want more.

Current setup:
  • KW Clubsport
  • Matte black 19" Volks TE37
  • Red AP Racing BBK











This looks hot but is it too over the top as a daily driver?

I don't care for the SL decals. They look cheap.

Go with the original TE37 decals. The wheel is a TE37 so it's totally acceptable. I know several people on the forums that have done this.

My vote was no stickers but black is my second choice. I like the sl stickers better than the original te37 decals that endless suggested. My te37's came with the original decals and I quickly removed them.

Yes. I had them a few years ago. Now I have bronze te37's.

I'd choose black if given only red and black. My advise would be to leave it clean though, it looks great already, and stickers "cheapen" the look (in my humble opinion).

i like the red stickers but only on the SL's and since you have the regular TE37's, IMO you should just keep 'em off.
