    I like the badges. I just hate those OEM wheels regardless of color. It would look better with 2011+ OEM wheels or aftermarket ones

    I agree badges are fine. But wheels too much.

    Any orange on a car is too much for me. But as long as it makes you smile when you look at it, who cares?

    Orange mirror caps and an orange wing on the back would be great.

    I somewhat agree (but not with the orange spoiler, no.) it's not that the orange wheels in themselves are 'too much', it's just they're all by themselves, it doesn't tie in / coordinate with anything else - because you can't see the orange badges from the side; so the orange wheels alone are like "POW! ORANGE!"

    And, I'm not quite sure the orange matches entirely with the colour of your car; I'd see orange wheels more on a jet black car...

    I would suggest adding some more orange touches here & there but (try to) keep it subtle
    ...how subtle can orange be lol ain't easy bein' cheesy

    Wrap is good to play with, it can be easily removed if you don't like what it looks like.
    If you know how to use Photoshop, you can try stuff out that way

    Or just wrap the whole car black or even matte black lol :-D that would be hot with the orange wheels

    (your car looks DGM dark metallic grey, correct me if I'm wrong, it might be the lighting?)

    It's a little too flashy for my taste, but as long as you're happy, that's what counts

    I suggest taking the badges back to stock or the I badge. The wheels are ok but would look better if they were a better wheel. The 08-10 stock WRX wheels are so ugly already that you just heightened the level of ugly by making them stand out more. But if the wheel was a good looking wheel the orange would pop off the car nicely
