If you are going to keep them I think they would look better color matched and idk I think the reason it looks weird is because of the angle you have them going across the roof. Instead of them going straight across, it almost looks as if they come to a very obtuse V.

So yeah color matching, bringing them slightly lower and redoing the fitment should make this look 10x better.

Is that true? The FQ has them and I wouldn't think it would be just for looks.

I know the dual-pitch SSS wing does some vortex work, but I don't know if it makes the VGs useless.

I have a 2013 X, and just installed it on my car. It fits perfectly and looks great!

It was an aesthetic choice for the FQ400, too. Just like the bumper and side skirts.

Not feeling it. If you must keep em then I agree with the other guys when they recommended for you to paint match them white.
