Spoiler

 

The car paint job? It's disgusting. I like some of the Chrome *insert name* modifications for cars. But the actual paint job itself is horrible. Can't see why it's so appealing, even to... "younger" players. I'm pretty sure my 13 year old self would dislike it if I went back and time and asked him/myself.

Chrome is awesome. It intimidates other players and it probably makes the car go faster.

In moderation sure i do like it. Honestly fully matte black cars looks just as terrible as fully chrome cars to me, and you see plenty of both online.

 

But hey to each their own

Never like chrome. Every cars that have chrome (or gold) paintjobs in them are revolting, make my eyes twitch.

 

I prefer the good ol' gloss and metallic paintjob.

I use chrome with crew gold on top of it for my entity. I full well understand people not liking it, that's fine. What I don't understand is griefing strangers because other people's tastes differ from yours. I would death-rape and spawn kill anyone who sticky bombed me for having a car finish they didn't like.

As a trim option it's alright some of the time.

 

But then some people go full chrome, never go full chrome.

Chrome wouldn't look so bad if the cube map wasn't so sh*t. Then again last gen limitations.

Chrome accents are nice (e.g the rings on the back of the Zentorno) but as the main body colour, it just looks tacky. Too much of a good thing and all that.

It only works as a secondary on some vehicles(Akuma´s frame,side stripes on Infernus and Blade...),but as a primary paintjob it´s ugly on probably all vehicles(especially if combined with neon color $ wheels with whitewall tires and clown or musical horn).

Secondary it could like nice, but any Brushed Metal will always look better to me. As everyone says, primary is just ugly with chrome. But maybe it's the future...

Yes, it's too reflective/shiny, as primary it looks like a cry for help to me. It can look good as secondary on few cars, though brushed metals looks much nicer in any case, classy not gaudy. F620 with brushed steel for example is one of my favorite metal paintjobs.

Tend to go with a darker metallic with brighter version of the same color as pearl for a shine to the paintjob. Like midnight blue with ultra blue, wine red with torino red, or racing green with lime green, you get the picture. Formula red with racing yellow pearl can work as well, basicly a bit brighter version of lava red.

It's terribly gaudy. Usually not what I'm going for.

Chrome only looks nice on like two cars. When I first looked at it, I hated it because it looked green inside the garage but I was wrong obviously.

I like chrome when it's used tastefully, not when some moron with a barbed wire tattoo goes to autozone and buys up all the cheap chrome stick on parts. Same goes for chrome wraps, they just look excessive and tacky stupid.

 

Chrome bumpers and accents on old schools look good. Even the right aftermarket chrome wheels can look nice. Point is that you can't overdo chrome or else you look like a no talent rapper with insecurities that's sure to be broke and irrelevant within the next 6 months.
