Default OPINIONS PLEASE!!!! =)

I've seen a few people cover up/ remove or whatever they do to the chrome trim on their Bonnes..... do you guys think I should do that to mine?! Or is white ok with it? I think it'* looks sharp myself the way it is, but when I saw a SSEi in my year and white today at the corner I REALLY thought it looked nice... but I also think the backend (dual exhaust etc.) makes it look even more sharp, but mine'* a SE! Chad and I talked about it once but it was a short conv.I'm confused

I'd keep the chrome. Makes things classy.

Kind of what I thought, but if you guys thought it'd look better I was willing to go either way! I polish it every once in a while... looks REALLY nice! :P

I think the chrome looks pretty good on the white....seeing that I have it.

The only chrome on mine that may go, is around the grill....but that is a different project w/in itself.

I took mine off, replaced it with gold molding. May remove that and put some striping (think of a thick pinstripe, like masking tape) in the channel in either green (my car color) or gold. I want to do the same to the upper window and grille molding. I just read a post on a guy that did the same thing I'm looking to do. Check detailing and appearance.

I say leave it.
It would look too plain without it,the chrome trim helps break the monotone.
