      Ummm...the OP does have a theme...black wheels, grill, body molding? Am I missing something? The whole reason I responded was not because I was annoyed people were saying they didn't like it, but the thread seemed to have spiraled down to a chrome vs. black trim debate in general and how some feel black trim in general cheapens the car. Again, you proved my point that black window trim can look "fine" because I quoted ToySlacker who said that all cars look nicer with chrome trim around the window. By you saying it looked fine, means that it doesn't necessarily look better with the chrome trim and that it looked "fine" with black trim. But if you would have read carefully, you would have got that instead of jumping on my case.

      Apparently, I should have looked at you sig first, Wayne, and not mess with you because you are crazy and like 311.

      haha nope. The LEDs were not aftermarket garbage but a custom built set from a respected fellow member who sold kits to modify the stock headlights. Some liked them and others didn't.

      I pass judgement well....thank you if you like it and its cool if you dont. I am not the first person to do this "mod" obv

      As I said earlier, I only sprayed the window trim to try it out. I always liked and still like the brushed aluminum panels that the cc comes with. I will take it off soon regardless because it didn't come out perfect. I'll take a few more pics when i mask it off again to spray it.

      Last Thursday i got 35% tints. i really like them and how them go with the whole black theme. I was going to get 50's but i realized how light them would be. Here's a pic...crappy cell pic but should be big.
      warning...it's dirty and stock height unfortunately

      i would say you did miss something...black wheels? i dont see any black wheels! LOL!

      so if we back up just a bit you'll see now why i argued...wasnt trying to call ya out even though, with his stock wheels (as pictured) it cheapened the look...if he goes all "murdered out yo" then yeah, i'm sure it'll look fine as with the Audi...then again, some people just dont like it...i hate all the hype over BBS RS's...people would run me out of town at a VW meet for saying that...17's look dumb as crap on MKVs and up...people would throw rocks at me...point being, so some like his car and some dont. ok CSB

      and rolling your eyes at my screen name i see... yeah thanks

      Yeah you're right about the wheels. I noticed that after I posted and realized I was thinking about someone else's car.

      I do agree with you on my screen name, though. Should've thought that one through when I joined.

      Ps...wasn't making fun at your name. Was commenting on your sig. Again, back to missing what I posted again.

      The wife needed a new SUV so traded it in for the t-reg. It only had 63k on it but was out of warranty. Figured we both would get new cars. Plus I wanted something with a little more room in the back, although the CC isn't all that much bigger inside than the S4. Low milage A6s and E350s were what I wanted but a brand new CC fit the budget. Missing Quattro though and the CC understeers like a bitch. Hopefully lowering it will make it a little better.

      Loved the Sprint Blue. Was originally looking at a silver one until I saw the blue. Turned so many heads. Suzuka is awesome and so rare. I've only seen it on an S5 and RS4. Expensive option.

      yeah, the CC's rear is roomy...but the lack of headroom for taller people sometimes kills it...as for your original choices....i love the new E Class and the A6's...but i just have to have a manual...and yes, the CC understeers a bit...lowering it helps just a little. i want an A4 so i can have quattro and a manual lol...

      sprint is one of my favorite colors though...and yes, suzuka is rare and expensive. comes on the TT-RS too

      How easy does plasti dip come off if you don't like the looks? I have seen a couple youtube videos that it looks like it peals off fairly easy and doesn't cause damage.

      I want to plasti dip my emblems and grill, but not sure if I will like the black out look on Reflex Silver or not. I think gun metal would look sharp, at least for the rear emblem.

      I have never taken off so I'm not sure how easy it comes off or what it leaves behind.

      In my opinion, the plasti dip looks best with the Reflex Silver actually. Again, this is just my opinion. I have a black CC and have dipped my chrome trim on the front grill and I think it looks good, but personally love how it looks on Silver.

      Just did my rims last weekend in PlasiDip, thought I would share.

      Took three and a half cans, five coats on each, wash them really good with dish soap and dry, wipe down with denatured alcohol to remove and dirt and remaining detergent, and spray. It was really easy, I trimmed trees in between coats to pass the time.

      Thanks! I took them off to do them, lots of over spray with this stuff. the two rear wheels i did simultaneously, the fronts were done one at a time because my jackstands didn't quite fit with the jack I had available... Its best to get them all of and do them all together so you can keep a consist coat across all four. The front ones got a heavier coat than the rears, it's visible if you know what to look for.

      I started doing the trim tonight, I got the rear bumper molding done and the rear badge done on the trunk lid, i'm thinking off leaving the model badge on and spraying them as well, it will be tricky to do them. Ill finish up the rest of the trim this week, I'm going to spray the top half of the mirrors, and im debating on leaving the front badge chrome and spraying just the chrome ring around the front.

      The tail lights will be tinted hopefully this weekend if the tint ever gets to me...

      So far I'm very pleased with it it definitely turns heads, and for the $30 it cost me, it looks pretty damn professional.

      Looks so good.

      I had a B6 A4 Sport, which came with the black trim instead of the chrome. Loved the look of the black compared to the chrome. But, the car was Dolphin Gray as well, so it wasn't too much black. But on the CC, I think the chrome looks better. With the car being black, I think the chrome adds a nice contrast. Maybe if the car was a different color I would have a different opinion.

      I'm going to see how it all looks, the matte provides a good breakup still and is definitely visible on the car. But that's the beauty of PlastiDip, if I don't like it, I just peel it off.

      I love that blue on the Audi's though, I've always had a thing for the color.

As mentioned above BMW has shadow line trim and Audi, Titanium. The desired effect is to give the car a more aggressive and sporty look.

      Take a look at my old S4.

      Tell me it looks better with the chrome. As for the CC, I'm still undecided. This is not a sport car so I think the chrome belongs; although if done properly, one could pull off the black trim look.
      It looks better with the chrome. Sorry.

      No reason to get so upset man. It just makes the car look cheap, like this Geo for example:

      Not mad at all. Just pointing out that it is your opinion and not a statement of truth. I also once had the same opinion but have since changed my mind. Based on your argument, this Frozen Black 3 series with Shadowline trim looks cheap with primer instead of paint and chrome trim.
