New grill and eyelids on need opinions

Hey guys and gals, I just put on my "type-r" upper grill and "c/f" eye lids, the reason for the quotes is because both those descriptions are bs but whateve, and it look pritty good, but I dont know how to go now w/ the look of my car, the two lanes im debating on are...

Style one: keep the upper grill black, get a c/f hood, paint the sholders of the hood silver and paint the second set of eyelids I have silver, tint the headlights black and put on my oem nightshaded tail lights....

Style two: paint the upper grill silver, put my lower grill back on (silver mesh, check the website for old pics in my sig) get a mugen style front lip and type-r sideskirts, and a new rear bumper (my rear is kinda f'ed up due to a run in w/ a 2x4 falling off a truck ) and way down the road getting a VIS platinum c/f hood ( the platinum line is a silver c/f)

Just lookin for some thoughts... THANKS!

well, ebay for ok euro style ones, but the ones in my pic are the factory 01 taillights with nightshades sprayed on them It was realy easy to do, just get a little masking tape to tape off the reverse light and then just go nutz... just be shure not to over tint them or it will be hard to see the running lights at night and the popo will be all over ya! I speak from experiance on that one, lol.

I think the black with a cf hood would look sick. Maybe because thats what I have, but who cares. Whatever you think looks good. DUDE, Just noticed your in Hampshire. I live in Huntley. My P's live right off of 20 and harmony road. Hit me up. Maybe we can hookup and cruise some time.

Yeah, JWalker, you're a moron.

Anyway, I say to either keep it all black and get a CF hood, ot paint it like diskreet's. If you get the CF hood, don't put the silver trim on the front of it, keep it all CF.
