I respectfully disagree with this. The murdered out look provides no contrast whatsoever, and makes the car look like a big black blob with no discerning features. Especially with rims, I find black rims pointless since you can't tell the design unless it catches the light in the right way, otherwise your $1000/pc rims just disappears into a black hole and looks no better than a spray-bombed set of $89 reps at a glance.
At the same time, overuse of chrome trim can be tacky but not as obviously so as blacked out trim. I'd like to see more use of brushed metal trim.
I'm not even here to defend my car but I think you need glasses bro. Are looking at all these car with black rims in a dark parking garage? Pics does most cars no justice because you can't see the lines and curves that makes the car what it is. I'll use my car as example, the rims are matte gunmetal so it doesn't really blend in with the polished and shiny body of the car. The grill itself is matte too with polished surrounds, provides a distinguishable design there. And that is pretty much the only things I changed unless you actually think the orange reflectors on the side is a visual improvement? To each his own but the reasoning of having a big blob of a car because there is no chrome surround around the grill and you can't see the wheels when there are no light just seems a bit ridiculous.
