Should I go with black mirrors (along with a black roof and CF hood) or stick with the silver? Pics up soon

I voted black to see the results, so its really 1 less...I hate how you have to do that, if I had an opinion on my own poll, I wouldnt need a poll to make a decision, WTF!?

black mirrors are the way to go. really sets it off IMO

I was thinking about this the other day. Black mirrors on a pearl white A4? I can't decide really picture it clearly in my head...

here is the answer to your question, considering i have it done and it looks sexy on a silver car do black mirrors, but mine are painted...and deff do a carbon hood and roof....just to give you a idea of what it will look like....here are some pics :)

Dunno kinda Vdubish I say stick to silver

Makes it look more sport than luxury. I like it!

I used to have oem black mirrors

08-01-2007, 10:33 AM
i think it looks good, ive been thinking about doing this for a while now

08-01-2007, 12:28 PM
cool, thanks for the input...and the pics...thanks silver bullet, I am in the process of transforming my car into yours....everything I have planned is what you have done, except for the wheels....I am even missing the side skirts

I voted yes because i will be doing this on my car once i find a passenger side back cover for cheap, already have a driver one

08-01-2007, 01:34 PM
I voted yes

you know how I can tell you didnt read the options?...

why not stick with oem color mirror caps? the ones that match the color of our car? the cars with black mirror caps are usually civics and whatnot :| doesn't look sporty at all imo :| i mean, if that looks sporty, then might as well add some stickers while you're at it :|

I would only do the black mirrors if you paint the pillars and leave the hood unpainted. If you paint the sides of the hood and do the roof but leave the pillars body color then the mirrors should be body color. I think it flows better that way.

Just my .02

my dtm cup mirrors are black, and i have painted sides on my CF hood and i still think it flows nicely.

well, the "blacks" have it, I switched them yesterday, and will post up pics when I get home, also put on my 6000k HID...lovin 'em both. the mirror caps will look awesome when I get a black roof!!!! cant wait!~

08-02-2007, 12:53 PM
anybody done it with just a black roof, no c/f hood?

08-02-2007, 01:30 PM
I'll prolly have the black roof before the hood, I can post pics if thats the case...actually I know I'll post pics so just keep your eye out...in a few weeks of so

In your case it is OK because your car is dark and the mirrors are dark but when you are trying to do the same thing with contrasting colors it's a liitle harder to determine what looks good and what does not.

In the end if you are happy with the results, that's all that matters. I have had plenty of people tell me that they do not like certain parts of my car or how I did it but I still like it and will not change for anyone.

Did I just date myself?!?!
