Racing stripes on a titanium grey Focus, what colour? - PICS

G'day all,
So I was thinking about an inexpensive way of making my car look unique and from seeing all the Focus XR5's around it give me an idea - racing stripes. So the standard XR5 turbo in Aus is white with blue stripes and my car is currently "Titanium" which is a sort of dark grey, see photo (not actually my car, but same model and colour).


The racing stripes I've found come in black, silver, white, blue or red. I'm leaning towards black or silver because I think they will go with the dark grey of the Focus the best. Here is a link to the eBay listing and some photos of the stripes. With the black stripes, this is what it will look like (except on a Focus obviouslly).


I was also thinking of getting smoked headlights and taillights but, since I don't want to replace them (too expensive) I found this.

Opinions?

^^Was just thinking that. I like the black on grey, but silver would be unique indeed.

Why not make your Focus even more unique and put the WRC graphics on your car.


If you don't like those graphics I would go with the black stripes then you would have the opposite of the special edition ST 500

Posted via FF Mobile To be honest i think you should make them gray, like the first wrc picture. Ghost strips to be honest...theyll look better then anything else without looking to over the top.
