What's to ask? They're just heel guards. Get whatever you think is cool.

you ought to get some heel guards with cutouts in them, they look much better than one big flat piece. just my opinion though

Cut out's arn't as good. They flex too much. I actually kept the stock heelguards behind the CF to make it more rigid.

I got some carbon fiber pieces on my silver, and black F4i Just put a set of heel guards on last week, and I think they look pretty cool.

I like the plain aluminum ones, but I'm not all that exciting.
Plus, I always get my pant legs caught on stuff like that.
Wait, I guess that's pretty exciting. lol...

^that it does.

I'm a fan of CF, but it's just pricey. Plus, unless you do it well, it looks just thrown on. Plus, it's one of those, "it looks good only to you because you're the only one that knows it's there."
