Paint it red. That looks like you couldn't afford the paint.

I agree. It will look much cleaner if you paint it. Paint the black rub strips, and your grill border (not the mesh) while you are at it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (mofolicious)

thanks for the feedback so far <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I first thought that it might look good, because some C30's have this two-tone paintscheme when coming out of the factory...<br>but on second thought... it might be better painting the trim

Re: (crossie)

I'd say paint the trim or paint your wheels the same color as the trim to better tie in the two color scheme. And I like your future front lip plans, it will look awesome! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (1SOUL)

LOL ^<p><br>Ok but really, I have thought about doing a different color on the trim, like the C30, but theres something about our cars that makes it just not look right. Go for color matched.

Re: (sanatarium)

It's because we don't have fenders like the C30 that can also follow the color of the trim. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"><BR><BR>

Re: opinions on dynamic trim... (crossie)

I've thought about painting/replacing my trim too.<p>Here's my car:<br><IMG SRC="http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee45/kylebrightman/V50-2.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe I have the factory stock trim (as opposed to the factory 'Sport' trim). I definitely need to replace the front trim as you can see the leasee that had it before me decented to do a little parking block riding.
