Idk I love the chrome grill, but I love the all black look to. I'm torn on what to do.:hmm: Yeah I have never seen that might look pretty cool.

Yeah, do you powdercoat or paint that? I would hate to paint it then have it chip and look like $h!t.

Looks good but if you black out the wheels then the grill has to be next. I think it looks funny as it stands out too much. I prefer the chrome grill with chrome wheels but JMO. The murdered out look is cool too! Complete that is.

ive been stock....all black.....chrome edges, black grill.....now back to stock.....My favorite was the all black, it just has to be done right so it looks good. I would def get the grill powdercoated, the edges can only be painted as they are plastic.

Yeah, I think the all black looks awsome, Just worried about that grill chipping. How hard is the bottom grill to pop out?

I second that question. I am going to be blacking out both grilles and felt like powdercoating would be great, but might be overkill, so I am going to paint them, but...I got a quote today from the shop that I use for all the work on my V and they want to charge me $550 to paint both grilles and the plastic chrome trim around the top grille. I am thinking...absolutely no way...I will just do it myself for $20.

I am just wondering if I could spray paint at least the bottom grille with it still in the car (and a lot of taping to keep the surrounding paint protected). I really don't want to have to try and take off the whole front bumper just to get at that bottom grille. :mad:

I agree 100% with bigjim (:hmm:) i got mine powdercoated for $40...:bouncy:
and to paint the trim pieces was $40

so grand total of $80 and it makes a huge difference

Yeah they are brigestone patenza run flats. Yeah I will be checking with the powdercoater to see how much. I think all black is in my future.As far as tint it's getting 15% all the way around and 35% on the windshield just waiting till it warms up alittle here in MN.

I've got double 5% all the way around on my limited tahoe and a 5% strip 14 inches down on the windshield. Looks great and no one can see in day or night.

As for the V...20% all the way around no windshield strip.

I have a buddy with his windshield done on his envoy and it's not to bad to see out of at night. Thats what I was worried about. With the HID lights,I figure I will be fine and I think it will make the car look mean. What's are some prices you guys are getting charged for tint. I have been quoted $240 for the hole thing and $275 + $80 for the windshield buy another company.

Here in VEGAS, going Limo all the way is a c-note n a tip... & that's for a car with no tint to take off (like yours). It's always more if you have factory tint and have to take it off and then re-apply any color tint and any amount of tint... I'd say double the price.
