I love the vert, but wish they would have kept one feature...

The production vert looks really nice, but I really wish they would have kept the silver windshield frame instead of making it body color. It broke up the color a little and really looked unique. The only other cars I have seen with the silver/aluminum look windshield frames are Audis and Rolls Royces. What do you guys think?

i disagree 100%. I never understand why every vert has a silver windshield frame. . . looked stupid to me.

It's still doable. Just get that part painted. Personally, that's what I would do. I really like the look.
After all, they did it on the Neiman Marcus edition.

If it would have been real chrome, that would be acceptable.

Agreed. Chrome is best.
It will not be long until someone makes a chrome overlay mldg for the convertable w/shield surround to improve the look- IMO.

I suspect the chrome trim is there on the other vehicles for another reason. I hate to think how the painted window post will look after a few uses. The convertible owners will be saying in a few months what were they thinking.

I can understand people liking a different look. I can also say I'm not sure I like the windshield header being silver. It's one of the things I hate most on our Sky. But I'm also not sure how good it would look all body color either.

But the good news is it's not a lot to paint so you could easily have it done once you get your convertible.
