Here is a pic before I installed the bumper and spoiler. I photoshoped the door handles to be paint matched. now my question is, should i paint the mirror caps or the whole mirror?

Option 1:
Door Handles and Mirror Cap


Option 2:
Door Handles and Mirror



I personally think option 1 > option 2
but im not too sure just yet. Opinions?!?!?

yeah....... I vote just the caps.......cause your wheels are black and probably the grille too so there needs to be a few things matching in black, IMO. lol

^ not a bad idea, i need to paint the grille!


and guys, the wheels are going to change. im trying to stay in the silver colors and they are going to be euro mesh style 17x7.5 and 17x8 wheels.

Don't paint the whole mirror body color.
It completely breaks the flow of the side windows when they are tinted.
Painting it leaves an abrupt cutoff and looks bad IMO.
Paint the mirror caps body color and the rest of the mirror gloss black so it flows with the side windows.
And yes, please get those door handles body color. Get rid of the textured plastic.
Do the pillars gloss black also. It really helps with the glossy black flow of the side windows.
