CGM w/ black or chrome license plate frame, what do you think?

So... waiting for the car... got nothing better to do in the mean time but order goodies... help me pick my license plate frame color

So, I'm getting a CGM SS RS, and looking through all the pictures it looks like pretty much everyone has either the frame that came from the dealer or none at all (good advertising for them I'm sure, but for shame on you all for not getting your car some jewelery! )

Not looking for specific frame recommendations, I already know what I'm getting, just cant decide on chrome or black.

And the reasoning is...

I would not even think chrome on this car but the tail light lenses have chrome trim, as does the badging on the back of the car, so it would not be totally out of place. I'm not going for a flashy ride, but I'm not opposed to a little more chrome since it's already there.

Black seems to be what's on everyone else's car (and it looks fine) but it's on everyone else car. The cars I've seen with no plate frame the plate just looks too big, so I'm 1/2 wondering if a chrome frame would have the same effect, just too much light/bright in a dark bumper.

I live in FL and have the normal FL plate, there's slim chance that will change with FL's rediclous charges for a different one.

Yes, I'm over-analyzing everything, it's this dam Camaro bug!

I know, I know, the correct answer is C: a Black chrome plate frame, but they don't make one in the type I'm looking for

Thanks for your input!

For reference : no frame


Chrome frame


Black frame

My 2 cents

Thanks to whatever admin moved this for me. I thought about putting it in here instead of General but figured it wasnt really new pictures/spy/media, and was more of a modification question. But I guess it would get chalked up to things more like stripes & wheels Thank you!

And thank you to everyone who has voted, I appreciate your input! Looks like black by a landslide so far, that's kind of surprising to me, but what I was leaning towards anyway.

I think you should match it with the stripes. If you aren't getting stripes or getting black stripes you should go with black, but if you get white stripes, you should get chrome. Just my thoughts.

I was thinking about this frame..... but $45 for a frame is a little much. I'm still debating also....

I could, but I'm afraid of what I'd start shopping for it next if I blew through this one quickly!

the rear light bezels are chrome mines blend well 2 gether.

Well I finally voted a couple days ago. I was the 11th person to vote chrome, right after I ordered the frame

What sealed the deal was the actual plate. I was originally thinking I was going to go with the standard FL oranges plate (some orange & green, but mostly white, which I would have got a black frame for), but then I saw a nice dark plate I liked. So with a dark plate the chrome should go well (like the chrome around the lights & emblems) plus I found a thinner frame that will work well, so it's not too much chrome. Hopefully it will look as good on the car as it does in my head

Now... If I can just explain to the wife the $145 in the account for a plate frame to a car I don't have yet
