    These cars are really color sensitive when it comes to adding bling. On my molding, (polished stainless--not chrome) I sprayed it with a satin clear coat to tame it down a bit. The picture is sort of poor, but at both ends where the emblems are, I left it bright for about 5". Gives it an interesting effect. Regardless, every one has different taste and no one should be offended if some don't like it

    hehe no, it looks good on red. The color red gets its own exceptions. chrome doesnt look bad on any color. It just some pieces will look good on some cars and not others due to their color. When it comes to chrome, it blends in best with silver since it doesnt stand out, doesnt mean other colors are bad looking, just means they will stand out more then on silver. Make sense?

    When you got white and silver chrome can compliment, when you move into the darker colors, chrome makes a louder statement. Just something you have to keep in mind when doing your car styling.

    ya actually its nothing special its the e&g classic lip kit, but unlike some that changed the rear bumper to the V or to a 08+ im keeping mine with a little twist from the rest.

    Re: Anthony's 2005 Silver STS

    Oh yeah thats gonna be sweet. Do you have after market wheels? I was thinking of the lip kit but i wasnt sure what it would look like with my oem 17. Well when you get it installed we better see some pics! Im playing to do the 08+ front, but i like my rear bumper, the silver and gray contrast well, and im sure itll look better once i get the euro lights, but yeah cant wait to see what your body kit looks like once installed!

    Re: Anthony's 2005 Silver STS

    Right now im keeping the 05 front bumper, the 08 does look very tempting tho, but i want a custom fro end all together. i have 17s right now but im looking to get 20s soon. dont want 22s, i didnt like the ride when i had mine.

    Re: Anthony's 2005 Silver STS

    Yeah, I would only go 20's its just hard finding ones that are classy/sporty at the same time, some are just sooo gaudy. But i found some i really like, but woah they are pricey. My next project is gonna be the 08+ bumper, i hope its an easy install
