I agree. I liked the look at first, but I think it's played out now. To each his/her own though.

Love the look, but there needs to be slight accents here and there to offset the total "blackness." The wheels especially need to have a little chrome...not much, but enough to contrast. I really like the black out look with the wheels that have chrome studs around the rim and maybe chrome lug nuts. Not overbearing on the chrome, but just enough. I also like the "black chrome" look that some folks have achieved on the tail light bezels. When I finally get mine, it will be black on black.....so yeah, I'm a little biased towards it.

Its overdone when its on ricers, soccer mom vans, and SUVs that don't resemble ruggedness (Toyota Sequoia, SCION XB, Chevy tracker, etc). As everyone says to each their own.

I use to like it when I saw it on sporty cars but now everyone is doing it and it's WAY overdone. When I see one, the thought in my head is "uggg, another one"

I use black chrome to help break it up. I think it works well.

I am partial to it also! And as far as I know, where I live and surrounding areas, I have the only one! Still needs a little more work done to it!

I was headed for a total blackout, but just couldn't do the wheels. The silver adds some contrast. If nothing else, you can keep the red SS badges and the word Camaro in chrome on the side.

I can appreciate a total black out. It's great to see a custom look, really no matter what color the car is.

I'm going for a partial blackout on mine. Black/chrome wheels (I just can't get rid of all the chrome), keeping the red SS emblems, blacking out the bowties, tint, keeping the red tail light covers. And probably going to replace CAMARO with black chrome with matching black chrome interior bits.

I'm not completely blacked out, but I'm LOVING the look with the black wheels and tint. I also like other colors (Synergy Green, Inferno Orange, Imperial Blue, Red Jewel). Cars are offered in a variety of colors in order to satisfy the tastes of a broad spectrum of buyers. I went to the dealer to buy Synergy Green. But when this car was side-by-side with the SG, my decision was immediate.

Big fan of black... not a big fan of blacked-out.
As a fan of the muscle car era... I love chrome on cars. So the whole thing of blacking out the bowties, tail bezels, and wheels. Nah... not into it.

I find it odd that the ones saying that it is over done, have a car that looks like all the rest that come from the factory. I like the look of a car being blacked out. It makes it look mean and not like just another car off a used car lot like all the rest.
