The title says it all. Do you think that chrome is good? In my opinion, it looks ugly when a car is full chrome. It only sometimes looks good when it is a secondary (stripe) color with a suitable primary color.

I'm glad that it's there as the more options the better imo. That said, I usually just add it as a secondary color, such as a stripe like you said.

It's nice in some cases (roll cage for Bifta, frame for motorcycles) garish in others.

 

 

OTOH I want a chrome helicopter and fighter jet. I wish we could buy / customize the paint on the military and aircraft.

Yeah, as I said before it looks good as a secondary color with the right primary one.

I like it usually as a secondary. 99% of the time it looks garish as a primary color. 

 

I don't get why we can't do chrome hubcaps. Some of the rims would look bitchin' in chrome.

Sorry guys I'm on mobile so I can't add the new poll option which was going to be "Sometimes I like it as a secondary color/stripe". I'll add it as soon as I get back to my PC.

I really hate it. Why does the most expensive color has to be the worst one?

Cool option to have I guess.

You can have chrome cars, but not chrome rims. God this game sucks. They f*cked up absolutely everything.

I bought a z-type and painted chrome with gold wheels. Made me feel like a rich wanker.

Well, chrome is only good as a primary color for doing silly things like that which makes you feel rich.

You mean you guys have never seen an asshole driving in an all-chrome vehicle before?

It's just a chrome wrap on the vehicle if you see it...only in extremely rare cases is a guy douchebaggy enough to actually chrome all of the metal

Some people like ugly and gaudy things and they buy games too.

I only like chrome strips. See, what happened is some little kid wrote R* and said: "yo R*!! I wantz some chrome paint for my carz!!!!"

 

And so, right along with a lot of other stupid requests, R* acted on them, hence, we get chrome-colored cars. R* listened to the wrong people and shoulda kept core fans at heart.

Like you said, I only like it as a secondary with a suitable primary color, but you know... Rockstar isn't forcing you to get chrome, it's just another option which you don't have to get if you don't wan't it.

It looks good as a secondary colour on the Sandking, but other than that I would never use it.

I agree i thinks it looks better as a secondary colour. As for everyone using it on there super cars all the time, I think its just one of those stupid trends, Most games with a chrome (or similar colour i.e. gold) colour option like Gran Turismo 5 people will go for it.

Ah, I see now...some people just "have" to make their cars chrome, I see...as if it's a sign of status or achievement in the game to have it unlocked or something

I felt compelled to chrome Michael's rental as I had him in his Epsilon gear and went looking for spaceship parts. It seemed cultish enough.

Chromed the Bodhi for a bit because is never clean.

Why would you do such a thing to Trevor's truck? I upgraded the performance but didn't took a thing cosmetically.
