Personally I think the red side skirts are a bit much but do like the mirrors. I would get carbon skirts, painted reflectors, and maybe red side markers and hood vents to go along with the mirrors

If you want to keep this theme, you'll have to change a few more pieces and add the same red accents. At the moment it looks odd because you suddenly have red pieces in the middle of the car, there's no transition and uniformity to the front and rear.

For example, someone posted a lip earlier, you'll need a lip that provides more extension than the VRS(chunky style in general), and have the edge in red. For the rear, you'll need a diffuser that has side extension where you can add red accents as well. The trickiest part is to not over do the red trim/accents on the additional pieces. Anyways, this is just my $0.02.. good luck with it.

Thanks mate. Future add ons that I was thinking of is to paint the front bumper ducts red as well but can't think where I could add red on the rear. Maybe side diffusers like you said or maybe the rear diffuser itself if I mate it with a varis diffuser. Just some thoughts I'm flinging around, short of replacing the whole side skirts with CF version.

This is the Firenze Red on my Range Rover Evoque(roof):


my constructive criticism: repaint the side skirts and mirror covers to black. I looks messy. If you wanna go red, then keep the mirror covers, but changed the wheels, and fender vents to red. But keep the side skirts black or CF.

Painting the front ducts and adding more red to the rear would just turn an already bad decision worse. The whole thing just looks cheap.

too much going on, u have CF in front, orange reflectors, red skirts/mirrors, and black (CF probably) trunk spoiler. If can't get new parts then keep mirrors, paint skirts black or wrap it and color matching reflectors. Then your done!

Your car is a perfect example of what not to do with trying to be "different" and doing the whole "accent color" jazz that a lot here tries to do.

Here's an example of how it's done right albeit different car:



It saddens me that people here ruin such a beautiful car from the start.

Please turn that civic back to an M3.

Thanks.

YES!!! But not something that can't be fixed easily IMO, just change the red to black and get rid of those amber reflectors.

Not working for me. You might be able to salvage the look by adding a few more blue striped to match the ///M logo.......

Or keep the mirrors red, loose the red skirt and add some red matching brake callipers.

Not looking great. The red accent look great with black but not so with white. CF will be better but as others said it has to flow all the way around the car. Good luck. Show us some updated pics when you can.
