Like the alloys being blacked out instead of the standard silver, help sharpen it up. But the rest of the black on the car kinda spoils its look, IMO. It's pretty much the issue with the Power Red on the Astra. It's a really nice red but its also quite a strong prominent, darkish red which means tweaking the exterior of the car becomes quite tricky. Using a dark colour wrap with the car would of been easier with a lighter shade red but still can be done, though it would need to be done in small amounts in the right places to not over darken it, or maybe even a light colour used instead, such as light blue or even silver.

De-chroming the car also kinda spoils the look as the chrome works quite well with it. Which is quite surprising as chrome seemed to have died quite a death on a lot of cars.

The amount of black that could work would be a black wrap to the front bumper chin (in-line with the fog lights) to help sharpen its look up along with maybe wrapping the spoiler section on the roof to break the solidness of it. Maybe even a nice pinstripe that follows the crease on the side of the car.

Thanks for the comment. A good read. Yeah I see what you mean about its being a bit too black! But I've always loved the black and red as a combination IMO.
