Do you like the blacked out look on black car? The chrome contrast looks good on a black IMO, as your headlight housing and wheels are shiny
I think the black on black on black look is played out. If you are going to do that, you really should black out everything, including those gorgeous wheels, which would be criminal.

My thoughts - embrace some chrome! If I were you, i would paint the outer rim of those kidneys gloss black but leave the vertical pieces chrome - see how that works.
