Interior trim - advise

Hey guys, to each their own but:
I am still on the fence regarding these add-on trim pieces Vs flat black OEM. Any advise appreciated.

That looks like the Sport Line trim. I see nothing wrong with it.

They could be added on or could be the factory trim. That red is one of the available options (I have matte silver).

As you noted, to each his own. Personally, I think the red might be too much given the ambient lighting options.

The only time I have seen red trim (as shown in the photos) is when the stitching in the seats is also red. In the first photo, it does appear to have red stitching, but it's hard to tell with certainty.

Thank you all guys for helping with the esthetics.
My car has the red stitching/dash trim as it is Sport line. I was wondering about adding the red accents on the door trim. Oem are matt black. I like very subtle mods so this one is a bit out of my "usual scope". I haven't seen this kind of trim installed ever. I was trying to solicit opinions regarding how "ugly" or "matching" it felt to other people who own the same car.
