Did I rice this up of do you all think this looks ok......I just got done and it is dark outside.....I will have to see it in the daylight to see if it looks ok:
Don't mean to hurt your feelings but, I hate it. IMO it should have been left the way it was so it matched. The red sticks out too much more my likings.
I don't like it. But you get an A for effort.Honestly, with your X, I would go with stainless or billet. That would look sweet. I have a stainless bezel on mine, even though I put it in halfassed, but it looks pretty cool.
Here's the one I have:
Mine is brushed aluminum so I don't know why they are saying they're chrome now, but that's it. It isn't for your year and I just checked www.speedhut.com (the seller in the auction) and they don't appear to have it. I'll keep looking.
dwtc, personally I like it but I'm also on the fence about it. No question about it a brushed aluminum would look 100x better. But I don't think it sticks out quite as bad as what some people might suggest or imply. I think it would work better overall IMO if your gauge overlays didn't have so many damn holes! I think that is what makes it stick out more than if it was more "solid"...
But anyway I like it
I don't think the red is going too far at all. The "up-close" shot doesn't look real great (mainly due to the darkness and flash reflection), but I really dig the first shot. Personally I would keep it red and in that same shade unless you find the brushed aluminum piece or decide to do the photo genesis, which is what Phoenix Imaging does.
