Jon Bell will say so. I would say to remove the chrome window edging and have it dark chromed. Definitely debadge too.

If you go drug dealer style, leaving the number plates as they are in your photos might also be a useful 'dechrome' exercise!

Reckon your car looks about right as it is.

I'd leave it but then I'm not a fan of the drug dealer look ;)
Me neither, prefer it exactly as it is supposed to be. I like a bit of chrome to be honest :)

You are incorrect, I would have it done in hi gloss Black along with the strip above the number plate and the grille apart from the Star.

Badges should go as well
