Am I the only one who doesn't like white wheels?
Also, I'm generally into smaller cars, and white wheels give the illusion that the car is even larger than it is. This might be part of it.

Maybe it’s not entirely my cup of tea, but I appreciate that someone did it. Variety is a good thing and I think the white on white is tastefully done. Maybe if the wheels were a different design (I’m thinking classic Enkei RPF1’s) it’d look better. Some of the camera angles and the fish eye effect are definitely not flattering, particularly the photos taken at ground level. Those photos make the wheels look much bigger than reality.

Agree with all of this.
This would look completely different (in a good way) out on the road.

I like it in a retro kind of way, but wouldn't do it if it was mine. It is cool though.

I think the only thing missing is the mirror caps should be CW too. The black mirror caps now look a bit out of place.

This is what made my enthusiasm for Champ White die out. Once you see it, you can't un-see it. The car looks like a stormtrooper or panda bear, when it should be all white. Black is now my first choice because the entire car is color-matched.

Mine is CW. I like the black contrasting details, which is actually why CW was my top choice. Just sayin’ if you’re gonna white out the car (like the one in the pics), do all the details in white too…except maybe the side skirts, grill, front lip, and the wing bracket. The car in the pics is like 95% there.

I really like all the FL5 colors and there’s definitely no bad choice. The only reason I personally won’t get another black car is that it’s so hard to keep clean and any little swirl mark shows up much more easily. Yeah…there’s swirls on my passenger side black mirror cap and it drives me crazy. I’m OCD enough already. An all black FL5 would make me want to put the car in a protective bubble and never drive it.🤣
