Default Final LegeNd-SX look poll: OEM CHROME LOOK? or NO CHROME LOOK?

Hey guys LegeNd-SX finally going to the paint shop this week, and need to take a decision on the final look paint is going to be bi-color black on top with either one of the Acura OEM reds on the rest of the body, but the question here is since this is not longer a OEM Luxury G1 Legend, what will be better chrome trims look or no chrome, also the door molding removed with fiberglass covering the molding spots.
Anyway please help me decide on this, I had asked this on another thread but I got like 5 or six answers, not enough to help me decide, since you guys are more familiar with the G1 looks and also familiar with the tremendous changes on the LegeNd-SX you will be my best help. Thanks.

Remove the chrome and door moldings, it will look a lot better and sportier imo.

I think it looks a lot better with just the chrome and no door molding. The chrome just gives it a nice touch on the body.

Leave the chrome oem, you'll have less problems with longevity down the road in terms of fading, chipping etc

Go full custom - BMW 'art car' style, no 2-tone and no chrome.

No way is this thing a 'sleeper' - make it loud and proud

Can you get sponsorship for the ^^ expense?
.... here's my pledge of $20 - let's all kickitup for CAR2N
