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.
