I cant stand the looks of chrome, but whenever I see a chrome Adder, I know that person abused a money glitch lol.

Chrome exists so that glitchers can have a color to put on their adder, of course!

I like it on dirty/rusty vehicles like the BJ Injection, agree about a secondary color on some vehicles like the Bifta (looks great as the topping on a Peyote).

 

I noticed one car looks good in full chrome: Carbonizzare. Its smooth curves are just right for that, though I prefer it in red or black.

i find that the carbonizzare in midnight blue really brings out the light colored interior .

i put too much work into using the lime green as the secondary color on my bifsta along with lime green tires to change it into chrome

I chromed one car shortly after starting my first run through the game. I drove it around for about five minutes, that was about all I could take, it was so stupid and nasty looking. I went right back to an LS Customs and gave it a tasteful dignified respray. F@#$ chrome and anyone who likes it!

i would agree with that if it pertains to people who totally chrome their car .

It looks good as a stripe. I have a car with a blue matte paint and chrome stripe in the middle, it makes the blue look more matte-ish. However it looks terrible as a primary colour.

To please those who like it. Plus, it looks f*cking good as a stripe. However, if I see you in a chromed Adder, I won't be responsible for my actions.  :miranda:

Yeah that's what I was referring to. I never tried it as a minor secondary color, that might be cool.

I'm not sure if I'm imagining this, but when I try Chrome paintjob, the framerate feels slower. Like the game has to work harder to render the reflections?

It can certainly look cool as a secondary color option, depending on the car. I haven't found a car that I like it on yet, but chrome would look nice as a basic trim.

But the whole thing chromed out? Hell NO! That is ugly as hell, and I think anyone that has a car all chromed out has awful taste.

Looks awful on all cars. Down with Chrome, unless it's the browser.

I think it looks terrible as the primary colour on any car.

 

Nonetheless, it seems to annoy people, and, as a fan of annoying people, I chromed my Super Diamond (which I was really bored with and rarely used) and added dollar rims. Looking like a tasteless idiot is a small price to pay if I can piss people off without really doing anything. It's ruined the car, but at least I actually have a reason to use it now.

I like it but it's tiring to see chrome Adders on every corner. Not sure why it's even there. Probably to satisfy kids or just R* is showing off that they can do different paint jobs like chrome.

For an extra customization option, it looks good on a stripe, I don't think it was ever Rockstar's intention for people to be making every vehicle chrome, the only vehicle I haven't seen a chrome version of is the 747.

I would never have a real life car in Chrome. In Online, my car of choice for my personal character is an Adder in Black with Red stripes (ok, the Entity is probably the better racer, but I just like the style of it).

 

But... if you are doing Franklin's street races in SP, chrome does feel right at home with the other pimped up boy racer cars. Similarly I wouldn't wear clothes like Trevor's myself, but then he'd look a bit wrong in the suit I wear to work.

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


Hahahahaha!! CrazyGay you finally said something intelligent! This is EXACTLY what chrome is basically being used for in GTA 5. I've already seen it in action. I have this one buddy (who's dumber than a stick) who actually took all 10 of his vehicles down to Los Santos Customs and one-by-one painted them chrome, with carbon fiber rims. Every single vehicle. And now whenever somebody new plays with us (even when he has friends over at his own house in real life) he makes it a point to show them his garage, boasting about how "sweet" his matching vehicles are. He honestly thinks it doesn't get any cooler than that. Wow.

And these are the types of people playing video games these days. They're so dumb that they literally need to be told what's cool, what sucks, what looks good, what doesn't, what to do, what not to do, etc. No wonder these companies have just thrown in the towel and say "Why bother, when 85% of our customer base are a bunch of dumbf*cks who can't even tell the difference".
