The hood strip..chrome or body color???

Alright I put the altezza style grill (from tornactive) on my sedan and the stock emblem on the grill. I think it looks better with the emblem on it than i do without it. Anyway, now that my grill is different, I cant really tell if I like that chrome strip above it anymore. I know dealerships sell body color strips pretty cheap that replace the chrome. Any of you guys do this, or better yet, which do you prefer on the sedan.

I put the altezza grill on my sedan as well. I also switched that chrome molding to a body colored one. I don't think that the colored strip looks great but I like it better than the chrome one.

What color is your car? For some cars, the chrome works better than others...the alternative is you could take a picture and photoshop it to see what it would look like...I'm sure there are people on the board who can do that too - all you need is a pic of your car...

that's really nice- although i don't think it would look good on my black coupe--- if you had a silver car, that would be HOT
