    Dang guys, everything posted up looks good and I’d be happy with all of them. I’m still looking, trying to decide. I like the red and blue contrast, it draws your eyes in like a laser. Not sure if I should do a bright red or Redfire.

    Luckily powder coating is relatively cheap and I can put them on my DSG vert if I really don’t like them. Redfire and gray will look good together.

    It will look good, just do your front calipers in the same color

    red is not complimentary to blue. it'll look like garbage if you do that. my cobra is avalanche grey so I'm going with rosso corsa (ferrari race red) because I have a Teksid block and I think red will look dope in a light gray and black engine bay.

    That will look nice. I realize that red and blue aren't complimentary. That's what I'm going for, I want the contrast.

    I like those black covers a lot. Perfect compliment to Sonic Blue paint IMO.

    i hear ya but contrast can be had with a better color. if you want something to pop maybe a barylium orange or since your color is fairly dark a light grey would look nice. you can't really go wrong with satin black, though.

    That barylium orange would look pretty cool too. That would be a nice one if done mat. I may be slowly changing my mind.

    Crappy picture but you get the gist of it. Matches my RF cobra but I like blue and red together.

    Nice and clean but like you said the all black is really clean. The coil covers being black look better to me. I need to go this route on my engine bay
