Grille Change

I liked the chrome but I thought black would add some attitude. I went with the IND painted grille. I like it. What do you think?

I think it looks far better, but I am not a fan of chrome, so there is that.

I guess it depends on the look you're going for. Chrome certainly has the more luxury aesthetic, whereas black (or a dark body color) evokes a more aggressive look.

Definitely looks more menacing. I have the chrome grill. May need to do the same!

Looking pretty good with your paint!

Mine is a Silverstone Metallic II and it was not looking good with the grille all black, so i decided to mix the two together for a "custom finish"

Lucid black outer - chrome inner

Similar to mine (though previous owner did it).
Body color outer (Singapore Gray) - chrome inner



I'm considering changing it to all black, though... Don't know.

100% better, make sure you get touch up paint from them -- my matte black grille has some chips on it already.

Chrome/black combo works best IMHO! Just like the car itself, it's the perfect blend between luxury and performance.

Looks good man. I have a silverstone M6 on the way next week. I was just about to get a carbon grill for it but you have me rethinking. Did you paint it your self or have a shop do it.

Im Thinking through what mods I will add. what brand and style (black or carbon) front lip do you have and do you have a rear diffuser. What other upgrades on yours?

Can you DM me or post some more pictures of your ride, i like to get some fresh ideas. I wont copy you, lol
