A side view of the whole car would help, but I like both. Nice car.

I'm not a huge fan of the splash guards but I love the side skirts. They in no way look like silly add on aftermarket body kit parts

I like everything but that spoiler, I like the Caravaggio one and think it would be awesome with the look you have. That spoiler just looks too short and chuny for the C5 imo.

i'm not a fan of the little winglets that come down the sides on those. I wanted one that ended before the curve. the ones that go the whole radius are too intrusive for me. I wanted understated.






This just looks way too big for my taste

I learned not to ask if others like something I've done. Most of the time some will like some will not. The only thing that matters is, do you like it.

I agree. Maybe they would look better on a black car because they'd blend in better, but for some reason they look odd to me with the side skirts and the red paint, kinda like they don't match or something. I do like the splash guards by them self, just not with those C7 skirts.

You've got to post some better pictures of the whole car, preferably with the apsis guards cleaned. Por Favor!

I'm literally in the process of doing the same thing as you, have the same skirts, same mud flaps. I just started notching the front passenger side mud flap but would really like to see your fronts in their entirety.

I would for sure leave the rears on, they look great and are independent of the skirts. My .02.

Nice ride, however, I prefer the nice clean look without add-ons etc. It really is a matter of personal taste. If you like 'em, keep 'em. It would be very, very boring if we all liked the same things. Best wishes!

thats not a Caravaggio, it’s close but it’s a aci I think. The Caravaggio is sleeker IMO but I get you point.
here is a Pic of mine for comparison.

Skirts look good, not too sure about the splash guards though. All that matters is what you like.

Anything that interrupts the smooth lines of the C5 body is a detractor, IMHO.
