Ok opinions needed please! Looking to get a mesh grille, should I go with black trim or chrome?

I have a passion red V50 that I am going to have tinted all around. My goal is to get a darker wheel (maybe anthracite) to give it that red on black look. However, I think the black trim/black mesh makes the front grille area look as though it's missing the grille. The chrome might give the effect that there is indeed a grille there. However, there really is no other chrome on the car except the badges on the back.<p>I also plan on adding a T5 badge to the lower right or left corner to make it stand out. Thoughts appreciated!<p><IMG SRC="http://www.dubstopimports.com/v/vspfiles/photos/13V500200-2.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://www.dubstopimports.com/v/vspfiles/photos/13V501200-2.jpg" BORDER="0">

Do what I did. Buy the flat black, and have the outer color painted to match your car. Looks much more finished off in my opinion.

I can't find any that show it off well for the life of me. My car is also titanium grey so it's hard to get a good shot. I'll be taking some good pics this weekend maybe, so I'll post some up then if you can wait that long.

I've had both. I prefer not having it chrome, though. I think a Body matched Passion Red paint job would look awesome, or black.

I'm leaning more toward the chrome, but I can wait on pics, for sure, mofolicious! <p>I won't be ordering for at least a couple weeks.

If you had wanted a chrome one I have/had a Heico chrome one I was selling for about 1/2 price. It is now sold pending payment though, but if that falls through for whatever reason and you have any interest let me know. It is in the classifieds...Thanks!
