Default I Hate Chrome!

I've never been a fan of chrome or any silver bright work. I have de-chromed a few cars. After picking up my new 2015 TDi I knew the chrome would have to go. I finally completed the transformation over the weekend. It certainly won't be everyone's cup of tea but I'm happy with the results.

The car had the front end wrapped in PPF, 20% tint, MB 17" wheels, 15% tint on taillights, Vinyl wrapped all bright work in black vinyl including the center caps. Car had CQuartz ceramic applied as well. The only thing left is to swap out the chrome lugs. The black ones will be here by the end of the week.

Right forum. It's a mk6 NCS. I like the blacked out look, but it needs some color/flash somewhere to set it off, imo.

Nice job, but I am product of the 1960's......to me it looks like a big black jelly bean (LOL).

I fully understand looks are subjective and we all are different. But nice work!

LOL! I like that big black jelly bean name

You're absolutely correct. Cosmetic mods are very subjective . I expect to get both good and not so good feedback. I always find it funny when folks post outrageous cosmetic mods then get all bu*t hurt when someone says "Not my cup of tea".
