    Does anyone have a picture of a White MX with Onyx Black wheels? I am interested in this look and want to see what one looks like in the wild before ordering.

    Also trying to decide on the red brake calipers or not.

    Thanks!

    Here you go...

    I ordered the exact same config except with the UW interior. We are going to name it Stormtrooper. ;)

    Thanks! I like the look.

    Just to confirm, you didn't get the red brake calipers correct?

    No, the Red Brake is only for P90D and I am ordering only a 90D.

    Is that the solid white or the pearl white?

    Looks great! That was my original choice but I changed my mind at the last second. Seems like a lot of white ones out there and I just really like the silver. ;)

    My icon shows me and my 90D. The SC called my MX "the Stormtrooper". Here's another...

    No red calipers BTW... it defeats the purpose of the black wheels :)

    Here's mine, Pearl White with Onyx wheels. I should have taken a photo before I put the Rimblades on, but I was anxious to protect those wheels. :)

    How much is the Rim Blade? Does it come in red and is it a DIY?

    I think I got them for ~$50 from Amazon for the whole set. DIY, took about 30 minutes to do all 4 wheels. Comes in lots of colors.

    There seem to be some knock-offs, so I'd make sure they come in a single spool that you cut yourself, with 3M tape, not separate pieces and non-3M tape (which the knock-offs seem to do). Here's what they look like: Rimblades Alloy Wheel Rim Protectors | Rimblades

    Had mine for a few weeks, plenty of highway time, they're holding on great.

    Do you have any pictures of the car before you put the rim protector on?

    I think I answered that in the section you already quoted. ;)

    You should have gotten the black rim edges instead of the red to continue the black/white theme! They still look cool though!
