      For some reason, this always looks bad. If lips are going to be a color, they should contrast or be an accent.

      I don't mind color matched centers, but the lips seem to be a bit too much for me.

      I disagree.

      I think the color matched centers look odd. Black centers with colored lips (maybe not even body color), but the black centers allow the big brakes to shine through. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I respectfully disagree. I think it can look bad, but it can also look wonderful!

      IMO this usually only works with white / cream colors.

      would you look at that, the only good looking car in this thread is the one without color matched lips.

      I actually like this, but it's because the car is all black and that's the only color accent.

      Honestly, before I clicked I was thinking I wouldn't like it.
      But I see the pics, and many of these look great. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
