If you were running say a black R lip or a carbon hood the black could be pulled off.

Another one for a black lip? Whats wrong with it being blue? I think it makes it stand out alot more and makes it look lower when its on the road. I just think it blends it into the asphault way too much when black!

I'm not going to lie, that ^ looks pretty terrible. Mostly because the blues don't match.

Would look good if the color matched. Otherwise needs to be black.

Your car looks like it got in a bad fight with the black TSIs. Blue all the way.
