    Which Emblem Looks Better?

    I painted my front grille emblem black this weekend and put a black carbon fiber insert in the middle. After I was done I realized I don't like it!

    So I'm trying to decide if I should buy a new chrome original off e-bay, just remove the carbon fiber insert, or leave it all black. Thoughts?

    ^^^ agreed. The third pic breaks it up a bit, also it keeps class to the car. The pure blacked out emblem gives it a more down and dirty race look, which I find most of my friends with imports tend to do. If you're car is modded to the point where it takes the souls of all surrounding vehicles. I suppose the blacked out emblem would be alright..

    I like the 3rd - chrome original off ebay. Ties the front end together nicely by having enough shine to balance with the internals of the headlights.

    Agreed! Thank you for the feedback, I think the painted ones cheapen the car, makes it look like a rice honda civic. The original chrome looks classy like a real cadillac! Well time to drop $50 to fix my experiment!
