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.
Look dont get mad...but i agree with what someone posted above. i think painting everything cheapened the look of the car. then again, depends on what you're going for. then again, the matte look clashes IMO. might as well just color match the whole car....now to each his own so if you're cool with it then cool.
and as for this Audi above...poor example....ok, so the Audi with the silver wheels and chrome trim compared to the Audi with the darkened wheels and black trim...i think both examples look fine. not sure what youre trying to prove.
I guess I'm not used to the clientele here on the CC forum. Coming from Audizine and every other board here on the Tex, blacking out the trim is the trend and what is in style for the Euro scene, VW, Audi, BMW, Mercedes alike.
As the saying goes, to each his own. Personally, I think mods are (or should be) about personal preference and not what 'is the trend' or currently in style. My .02 cents.

Personally, I actually agree with the haters on here. I prefer the chrome on the CC, especially on the dark colors. Mine is black and I like the chrome. It's a "luxury" car and the chrome fits. I'm not putting down the OP, though, because I know what look he is trying to accomplish and he has obviously put in a lot of work to get there.

Thanks. I'm not on here to pick fights with anyone, although it may seem like it from this thread, but I just want people to have an open mind when it comes to modding, especially when it seems as though a large number of people here in the CC forum is either new to the VW scene or are just older guys on here researching their cars.
and just b/c some of us dont like what he did doesnt mean we're being dicks...i'm definitely not hating on anyone. just wanted to say i didnt like it...same goes for you saying you liked what he did...who cares. you liking it and me not isnt going to change whats done lol
and sometimes we'll suggest things that maybe the OP could consider or try as a another idea...
either way who cares. its the internet
Apparently, I should have looked at you sig first, Wayne, and not mess with you because you are crazy and like 311.
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
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.
sprint is one of my favorite colors though...and yes, suzuka is rare and expensive. comes on the TT-RS too
