Sounds like a good idea until you actually do it. No bueno. Did the same thing on my 2010 Black Mitsu Ralliart with Enjoi Blue, doesn't come out as well as you'd think. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder; the great thing about dip is you can peel it right off! Maybe instead of dipping the entire spoiler and mirrors, think up a cool way to accent them with the red.

My lip, sides and rear lower are TR...thought about doing mirrors and spoiler but opted out because it just doesn't look right

Yeah, i think mini cooper did the "red mirror" thing, and I don't think I wanna go for that look.

you car looks black in the avatar. I find that matte black or carbon accents look the best with black. I've dipped the center part of my grille matte black and I like the look, it's subtle. You can get away with the roof and or the spoiler too without looking too rice.

I think it'll kinda look like a Nismo Juke if you do the red mirrors, but if that's what you like power to you! I've got red badges and wheels on a candy white, I like it quite a bit.

Thanks man. Car is getting wrapped and wheels powder coated at the end of the month. So no more black and red

All of my red accessories are Plasti Dipped. I've got a set of Touareg brembos right now that I'm debating what to do with I'll definitely be powder coating them, but can't decide on a color. If they go red I'll have to peel the wheels, black is easy to maintain but I feel like they get lost. I'm thinking white with red decals at the moment but maybe a gunmetal grey...
