Seal gray sides on black

Bought them used on ebay for a goof.

Would have to see a shot from further back to get the effect.

I like 'em, Ray. Breaks up the black, but looks like it belongs.

Looks good, but really need a pic of the entire car to get the full effect. Funny, I posted a thread about how black scoops would look an a seal grey car.

I do like also. I concur, we need a shot from a distance, to get the whole side of the vehicle.

I'd bet the grey goes nice with the wheels...though Arctic Silver might be a closer match.

Black on white looks nice.

I wonder how the Seal grey sides look on a Lapis Blue body?

I like the contrasting color for the vent as long as it ties into other things on the car. I think if you're going to do it, get the 03/04 like the OP did.

I like 'em! Anything to break up that slab side! (and why I like the PORSCHE stripe too!)

Hey guys, is there a way to replace the inner assembly for the side grills? Not sure if there is a separate part for the inner piece that the grills clip into. The passenger's side of my 03 is just held in place by the screw as the inner pieces are broken.

Anyone thought of doing red to match brake calipers? I was thinking of that but wonder if the seal gray looks more subtle.

I agree with PW. It looks good, but it will be even better if you match the wheels. I had Arctic Silver. For yours, I'd say paint the wheels the Seal Gray.
