Default Would it be vicious to paint the grille black?

I'm looking for things to do to my 1993 bonne SE to make it more vicious. Its white, with spoiler, black alloys, smoked out tailights, soon to be smoked out windows and maybe an exhaust..should i paint the grille black?? would that be a vicious look for it or not? :o

I don't think it'd look too great.. I'd keep the white.

EDIT:
By replacing it with a black grill, I think it'd make the car look a lot cheaper because it would just remind me of those cars that are too cheap to have body-colored parts, so they have generic black parts instead. (like many cheap cars that have black mirrors only, or other black body panels no matter what the color of the car is.) You should feel lucky that GM actually put forth the effort to make everything body-colored on the Bonnevilles, to change that, would only make the car seem cheaper. Just my opinion.

well my grill is black on a red car, and i like the way it looks. thats totally a matter of personal opinion. if you do decide to go black with it, is replacing it with a grill from a black car an option? that way if you don't like it after a while you can go back.
