    Default Wing mirrors. To chrome or not to chrome. That is the question!? lol

    As per the title guys really. My car was a standard LS and over the last year I've been making subtle styling changes. I feel that chrome wing mirrors will either make or break the look of the car but I'm finding it difficult to visualise so wanted other people's opinions. Just had fog lights fitted. For show only.

    it depends mate if you want it to look like something that goes in max power or a subtle look. its your choice on how you really want it to look. im not a fan but to make it look good is to lower it and put a nice set of wheels on it that would look smart and to keep it clean, that's when most people seem to notice because obviously it stands out more. see what other people say and then go from there. i do like the colour must admit

    Had the Irmy chrome fitted to my mirrors for the last few years and they looked good imo. Car always gets good comments about her. I'm now changing to matt black due to wanting a change for something different. End of the day you'll always get comments saying "yeah go for it" or "nah it'll look pants", end of the day it's up to you.

    Do agree with GT3071R though, wheels can make or break a car and keeping it clean and shiny will make it stand out against most other cars whose owners just don't bother to look after them..

    Some valuable comments there guys. Thanks to both of you. Believe it or not, but the car has actually been lowered from standard. Bought Bilsten B4 shocks and lowered 15/20mm springs. Eibach Pro-Kit IIRC. Does have slightly lower profile tyres though, 225/45/17's. May change back to 215/50/17's though cos it's a bit too rough for my liking over bumps sometimes. Was thinking of getting some 18" or 19" wheels for it. The black ones with silver lining of the spokes type. Are you selling ur chrome mirrors bigboy? (that sounded so wrong lmao) but couldn't resist

    How about chrome door handles instead of mirrors? Would look great on your car's colour.
