What do you guys think of chromed out grills? I personally like as little chrome on the car as possible. The outlines of the kidney grill stock look nice. I don't like totally blacked out grills either. Your opinions please!

I think all black looks wicked, specially on black cars:

Charlie's car.

I like a little variety though. If the entire car is all black it looks less interesting. Charlie's car looks good because he has the motor sport flag and its a different colour. Looking good charlie! :)

Yours would look good blacked out or stock.
I like a little chrome as well, but i also like th elook of the chromed grill on my car.

Dont expect chrome slats to last more than 1 year. Mine are totalled from the winter. The salt took the chrome right off the slats, and now it looks like i have a dirty grill. I've got to redo it, or i might buy a real chromed grill from somewhere.

Bryan, don't you remember you were one of the guys that convinced me to change my grill from all chrome to black?

i'm more for the chrome grill. and who saw my car knows not just the grill. i got the door handles and the little trunk lip as well in chrome.

i personally think on a black car chrome looks good/alright. any other car collor it doesn't go with it.

I think that it really depends on the colour of the car and what look you are trying to go for whether it's classy or sporty.
