Color theme for my new 6

Hey guys,

Just bought a 2007 mazda 6 station wagon and now its time to customize, my question to everyone here on the forum is what scheme should I go with black and red or black and white. Please answer which color and why and I am open to other suggestions. The car is currently black on black and I want it to look mildly custom.

Going your path, I would say tint all the windows, leave everything from the windows up painted black and everything below the windows paint charcoal.

If it were me, I like subtle so I would tint the windows, leave the paint as is and invest in some tasteful rims. Then maybe switch the headlights to HIDs and add some chrome accents like door handles.

Unless you plan on keeping it forever remember that if you get too extreme with the mods you are going limit the pool of buyers when it's time to sell. You already have a small buyer pool because it's a wagon, so remember sometimes less is more. Although I must say the 6 wagon is one of the best looking wagons ever.

What do you mean, chrome totally pulls this all together..... (sarcasm detected)



If only it didn't look so bad, makes the car look like you missed a few spots.
