Details, details, details. Look as good at night as you do in the day!!
At this point it's a style thing. Some people like them white. Some like them black. The white has the cool vintage vibe of the early cars and the 914-6's and GT's, where the black is more sophisticated and ties into many of the cool 70's colors better.
Until now, these were NLA (no longer available). These will fit all production years for the 914. As mentioned, the "Early Cars" from 1970 into 1973 including the 914-6, had the white surrounds. The "Late Cars" from mid 1973 through 1976 had the black ones.
It is not uncommon to find early cars now with the Black surrounds because people would paint them black or swap them out with black ones. Black surrounds seemed to be the things for a while there. Now these white surrounds are making a comeback.
