Black louvers would look good on a red car but you don't want to overdo the accent color. There comes a point where the accents stop adding to and start taking away from the overall beauty of the car. It's up to to decide where to draw the line. After all beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I would say go red.

Hey Saucy I had the same dilemma earlier the year, I was debating to go with Torch Red or Black louvers. Unlike yours, my Roush hood scoop was matched to the red so in the end I opted for the red to keep everything uniform and I love it.

In the end the choice is yours, go with your gut feeling.

Man that's a shame for you bc if they did match yours and for that price I would've scooped both sets.

Looks good, glad you got the red ones. Black would have been too much with the other black accents you've got going on. Good Choice
