Installed my matte black grille today from Shark Racing. It eliminated the crooked "H" and matches my matte black rims. I am still debating whether to black out the chrome piece on the hood. It was a pretty quick install, but be warned, there are screws on the inside of the stock grille and they are a pain in the arse to get off.

After:

I like it a lot. I think if you use matte black vinyl to cover the chrome "mustache" it would look pretty badass.

They want $195 for a fake carbon fiber decal that goes on that piece. I may just try to remove it myself and spray paint it matte black.

i dont mean to offend anyone who likes this

but i think it looks retarded, like a sonata with a mental disability.. it literally it gives off a dumbed-down vibe... maybe becuase its dull and doesnt reflect colour (cuz its matte). it also matches no part of the car except for the window sills....

but thats just me :grin:

again, no offense to those who like it and those who know people with mental disabilities

I kinda like it. The matte black and the creases in the body work are reminiscent of the Stealth Bomber. The chrome above the grille should probably be taped over or painted, though, because the loss of the chrome on the grille below makes it appear as if it's floating on a black surface and not visually tied to anything. The chrome from the headlight clusters along the windows should remain, because it forms a single arc alongside an otherwise all-black car. Very stealthy.
Looks nice! :)

i think you should get rid of that chrome piece that's just sitting there in the middle.
other than that, i think the matte looks awesome. also because it's black. probably wouldn't work on any other color.
but i bet it will show a lot of scratches easily though..

Looks great, armycop.


I know I'd do a double-take if I saw you on the roads.

When you post a picture of your mods in this forum, you better have some thick skin.
If people like it , you are a genius , if they hate it your a idiot.
I don't like it.
On that black car it turns the front end into a big blur.
I think his best mod was removing that license plate.
I would have spent the money on some fogs.

Did anyone else notice the first pic is reversed?
Look at the license plate frame.

I am looking at my options for getting rid of the chrome strip. I saw some blackout tape, but the roll I saw was only 1 3/8" wide. The chrome strip is slightly wider than that. I have to look into removing and painting it.

To all the negative posters, it's a free country, if you don't like it, you are free to comment. I really don't care since I am the one signing the check every month for the car payment. The important thing it that I like it.

How about this? Kinda makes you feel good!
Since you are handy with the photoshop, can you black out that chrome piece and post it? That way I can see what it looks like.
