Here is what happened....

 

It's mostly the Chrome Adder... but we'll just stick with the color itself (because the same principle applies)

 

When you get a paint job for your vehicle, the most expensive is Chrome. So people would start buying Chrome and drive around with a sense of entitlement that they were 'richer' or 'better' than other players because they have the most expensive paint job. Or at least that's what other players thought those players were doing (as if someone can't genuinely like Chrome)

 

Instead of other players getting 'jealous' or being 'impressed'.. they chose to approach it with an attitude of "Chrome is a stupid color".

 

Chrome really isn't dumb, and is quite snazzy looking (if used right)..... people just say it's stupid to make the people who bought it feel bad.

 

Crew Color Chrome is quite awesome looking as well

 

Just thought people should know this.... because a lot of you out there don't even know WHY you hate Chrome.... you just hate it because it's the "cool" thing to do and everyone is doing it.

I don't care whether or not people think chrome is stupid. It's my vehicle. I decide what color(s) to give it.

I like your avatar.

 

On topic: I do not mind chrome on vehicles. I personally wouldn't spend my cash on it, but I don't dislike seeing them in races or anything.

I would trade chrome paint jobs for chrome wheels without hesitation. I think it makes cars look like tinfoil wrapped turds, but I guess it's good for making it easier to spot people I wouldn't wanna play with in the first place.

I don't understand why this is not available.  I can't get my rims to shine, they all look bland.

The only reason some people hate chrome is how people decide the rest of the colors for the car. Like the wheels, people like to put lowrider wheels on a chrome car and paint them with a color that makes the car ugly.

It's because there is an assumption that anyone with chrome on their car is showing off, nobody likes a show off. That's why I think people hate on chrome.
Personally I would never put chrome on any if my vehicles but I don't hate chrome.

Chrome sucks. Period.

 

Try Brushed Black Steel with a Frost White pearl. It looks much better.

As for the people that use too much chrome. It reminds of a discussion ive had with friends.
Ask a real car enthusiast in real life what he thinks of shows like 'Pimp my ride' etc. And you'll hear them say that all their cars are hideous, overdone POS. Which reminds me of all the people buying chrome paint for all their cars in GTAV. Looks like you all just got pimped from x to the z.
