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
Definitely not a fan of a fully blacked out car. The 433 wheels are too pretty to powder coat fully. Need to find that played out lambo door meme, with a Gallardo and a Honda lol.

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.
Can't agree more, blacked out is played out . Not sure how I'd feel about chrome verticals. Any pics?

Beautiful! Are you running spacers?

That's why I'm torn, because I agree the gloss black kidneys really make it more aggressive. I'd do those, plus the rear badge leaving everything else alone.
