The black plastic looks good on a white or red with a black wheel combo,IMO.

Glad to know I am not the only one that thought about this.

I am having mine painted after my leave. I already have the paint and everything. It will look tons better.

Trying to find pic of CS/Boss painted I seen.

Here one of Boss/CS painted.


Also when they did my Boss/CS switch they didn't have to take off the whole bumper.

Damn that looks good! I think down the line a bit I might do the 3d carbon body kit and have it painted to match as well, the only plasticy part on that is a small area under the rear bumper between the pipes, super clean

I like the rear of that kit. But I think I like the Roush or Boss/CS front better.

That looks pretty cool in white .. I'm now thinking-the darker the exterior color-like my Sterling Gray car-the less of an overall difference it's going to make ?

I dunno... It's subtle but totally changes the cars look, I still think black looks super clean even though the bumpers look black already

I'd agree. I'm looking for some good powder coated black wheels. I've got the flat black stripe so the black trim acts as accents. Plan to add Roush's side splitters and rear valance. I like the idea of not having paint chips.
