I've only found two so far that I think the chrome even comes remotely close to not looking ridiculous on;

The Duneloader

And the Z-Type (but only the secondary color)

0_0.jpg

Any other tasteful chromings to be found?

IMO z-type with secondary chrome is the best looking.

I swear, it's like it's gone from being something the #YOLOSWAG crowd likes to a very lame joke.

So, not a huge transformation, but still...

I previewed my Bagger with Chrome(Don't have Chrome unlocked), it didn't look too bad.

That doesn't look too bad. That body style, along with that classy ass front grill, almost pull it off.

I wouldn't blow this up on sight.

I'd like to say that on the tailgater (with a performance hood and carbon roof) looks decent as a secondary. 

 

The chrome rear is slightly unattractive, but I have to say that the grill looks much better.

That's how I have Franklin's in my SP game. It actually works really well on bikes, I've found.

Dude calm down, it's fun.

 

I have only 2 cars with chrome, it's the Z-Type and the Sandking XL, both black/chrome.

Very nice. But seeing those headlamp covers on a Z-Type just grinds my gears. Other than that, though, yes, excellent use of chrome. :)

also tho i cant put a picture of it as my single player game is on a entirely non-xbl account.

 

Having Chrome as the secondary color on the infernus is Really nice...

 

it only adds chrome to a small strip below both doors where the words are... beautiful outlining for the car with any other color as the main.

Much prefer chrome as a secondary colour, not seen many examples (if any) where the car looked good and it was the primary colour.  The F620 above is not too bad but would much prefer a metallic instead.

Well done to all for using Chrome as it's meant to be used - as a highlight.

 

Who the f*ck chromes out an entire car? It's garishly overwhelming and looks crap.

 

Except for that F620 - pulling it off, inexplicably.

Chrome looks pretty sweet as a secondary color.

 

I do plan on owning a chrome adder eventually though. Swag :)

gonna say it works on the infernus well. my second char has an infernus that i was thinking of putting it on this might inspire me to finish off the races and give it a go.

 

the f620 I think looks best with one of the metals, brushed aluminum/steel/dark steel all look great on it if you havent tried those out on it yet give it a go.

 

heres brushed steel on the f620 not as gaudy as chrome but still shines great in the sun.

Anything with a huge area if chrome ruins the car. Its only acceptable if its small things like ztype secondary or the infernus, etc.

the anti chrome brigade make me laugh, so many people getting offended because of someone elses personal choice in a video game.

just for them ive chromed my entire garage as its funny listening to idiots raging as I go past (`oh that guys got a chrome adder he must be a kid blah blah blah)

I have a fully chrome entiny, gauntlet, hexxar, adder, stinger gt,sentinal xs, infernus, feltzer and voltic and I take great delight when people try and slander me for it :p

just be sure to wear sunglasses when checking out my garage....bright white lights+chrome= screen glare haha

as for what looks the best? I have to say the fully chromed infernus is my baby, the sharp lines on that thing just look wicked chromed up and the shotgun exhaust fits nicly

It will sound awful, but I think the Cheetah looks good with Black on Chrome...

I'm genuinely surprised you didn't add a single YOLO or SWAG in that post.
