Leave it the way it is right now, and put some chrome tips on it. Call it a day.

The decal you posted doesn't belong on the Imp, it belongs on a truck.

x2 on both of these statements. Chrome tips are exactly what the car needs to set off the rear just right. With them, the chrome strip might look good left on.

i like it just the way it is..but i do have to agree with the above..chrome/stainless tips would look pretty awesome..and make that chrome strip not look so out of place..

besides the chrome kinda brings out the body lines of the car..you take that away and it just isnt gonna look right

quick someone photoshop the chrome body color!
