Chrome was good in the early years, now it's all about colour matched or black.

Do yourself the favor and black the accent pieces out or colour match them.

you have to have ballence, if you have it all blacked out but one or 2 little things, chromed, it will look stank... but same if it's all chrome except black bumpers... ghey... you need to have a good ballence, although red, chrome and black all looks good together
