Do you think silver civics with carbon fiber and gunmetal rims is overdone?

My silver sedan had the black door *****, black rubber molding thingies on the sides, and has black tires (BLACK TIRES??? WHOA). I think it would look pretty good with carbon fiber hood, lowered 1.6" and on 17" but on silver rims. So do you think I should go for silver rims with cf hood or gunmetal with cf hood?

I say go for it. I'd like it. Plus, a good looking sedan isn't as common as a coupe.

Who cares if its over done or not... the reason it may seem overdone is because its so good looking.... thats what ive got with my ride... so its allll good... do what ever u think looks best.

I'm not a big fan of gunmetal rims, so I am getting silver painted kazeras. What would you say looks good besides the rims on the exterior. I'm also getting LED m3 mirrors.

silvrbreez02 can only hope to improve
IMHO...

Overdone!

But that is more so on the coupes than on the sedans. In your case I'd go for it, people might have to second take to make sure it's not a coupe. Prolly will look good.
