Gotta go with red for the accent! Especially if you have the wheels to show them off. But can be a b**** to keep clean.

Yes, I had red pin-striping on my black 99 SSEi for all of 3 days. Took it off because red sticks out on a black car like a soar thunb.
On a silver car though I believe red would go alot better.
I say give the red a try.
Not to mention the red calipers on a black GXP do look alot better on the 2000+ body style vs 92-99.

I say go for the RED.

OK red seems to be the peoples choice.
How about this? Red calipers and a silver caliper mounting bracket.?
