Question New Red Candy V6... What color rocker stripe should I get?

So, this is my first mustang and first post. When I got the 'stang, the dealer didn't have one in stock without the stripe delete, but told me that they'd put one on for me when I decided what I wanted. The question is, with the darker red of the Red Candy Metallic, does black or white look better?

Of course, to make things more complicated, I'm now considering painted louvers as well... what do you guys think?

Let the photoshoppery begin!

Stock, as she sits right now:

Just a white stripe:

No Stripe, just get the louvers!

Louvers and a black stripe:

White stripe and louvers, obviously!

It depends on how noticeable you want the rocker stripe to be and how much you want the car to stand out. Personally, I like the black as it's more subtle. Haven't decided for sure which black stripe set I'll put on mine. The window louvers are all the way good to go. Of all ur pics, I liked the black stripe with the louvers the most, that's just my preference though.

Have you given any thought to silver, grey or pewter stripes??? Those colors would compliment your wheels. Good looking car, any way you go.

Black or white looks good. Silver is not a bad idea either.

Depends on what look youre going for, Im liking how mine is coming along with the black and red. Mine came with the black rocker and I added black hood spears and tinted the windows.
