    Any pictures in cars where the chrome has been removed? MC red?

    did see some plastidip thing but dont like that. Interested in wrapping or other solutions. Love to see pictures of different options and hear experiences.

    personally think he chrome on the model S is plain terrible. Did miss the option like on BMW to remove the chrome from factory. ;-)

    Here is one of my customers cars (zax123). He had all his chrome wrapped in either gloss black or carbon fiber, a very nice looking car, and much better than plasti dip as far as looks and durability goes.

    That looks really good on the black.

    I'm not sure it would look as good on a MC Red. It's one of the few colors where the chrome doesn't overshadow the paint, IMO.

    What color would you make it? Black door handles would look odd on an MC red. Gray to match your wheels?

    I'd be happy with a satin or brushed finish instead of the brightwork on my MC Red, but that sounds like more trouble than it's worth.

    Guess why im looking for pictures? ;-) black, carbon, tinted to look like black chrome etc.. Anything but the ugly chrome chrome...

    Black and carbon did look excellent on the orange BMW 1M so dont see why it would not look good on MC Red

    Very old thread, but I'm in the process of doing it.
