Modding for CB 550i M Sport

I've been toying about using CF for nodding pieces inside and outside of my car however I'm not sure how it will gum out with the CB color. I'm talking about rear spoiler, front lip etc

u,;y for wheel, I'm thinking about using red as an outline. Last I want to use CF for the grill but again not sure how It world look. I could go all black there. I wish knew how to use photoshop.

If anyone has a car with any of these combo could you post a pic?

Do you want to see the color combo played out on a F10 or just any car? I did the red flares on my black e60 if you are interested. Let me know

Any car would do... it's more about the color combo than anything that I'm curious about.

I'm not personally a fan of big red lips (if you go for a lip I suggest a thin outline around the rim) but it looks kinda cool.

How did you do your grills like that? They actually look really interesting...

Its easy to do the grill, I had a paint shop do it; however, you can just get a set of black kidney grills, tape the portion you want to leave black, paint the rest the color you want, and then finish it off with clear coat. Its a $15 DIY if you don't already have the black grill (2 bottles of spray paint, 1 black 1 the color you want) if you already have black grills, it'll be about $7.50.

The grills looks really NICE! The car looks really nice; Not sure I would do the lips red now though. I'm afraid the cool factor will run in short time and I'll want to redo it. thus me wanting to see different ideas. Seeing is believing. Cool car there my man.
