Where did you pick up the eyelids?
Sorry it took so long. They are actually a wrap.

That really looks nice. My 7 is this color and my wife wants me to go back to this color once I order my car. With the car being that dark, do you sometimes think the black accents and wheels are washed out. I am having a hard time deciding to go with bkackbwheeks or a brushed silver or graphite similar to what I have now.

It's all personal preference. I tend to look at the overall clean lined silhouette of the car as a whole so all of the dark colors working together are appealing to me but I can easily see how people would prefer some contrast in colors.

Also, It's hard to see in the picture but my front splitter, rear diffuser, spoiler, mirrors, side skirts, and side vents are all carbon fiber so in person in the light you can see the transition from DGM paint to carbon parts to black wheels more clearly.

At the end of the day it's your hard earned money paying for the car so go with what works for you.

I was thinking it's the lighting also. I wish I were able to see in person to get a good feeling of the car. Thank you
