isn't chrome a B*tch to keep clean and free of scratches? I saw a chrome mercedes at the LA auto show one time and that thing was nice but it was filled with scratches.

anyway... I am not a big fan of chrome, but I do think it would look pretty sick.

i havent seen to many chrome paint jobs - but with all the curves and stuff the RX8 has I don't think it would come out that nice.

Definetly unique though - I'd stop and look at one but I wouldnt ever pay to have that done to my car.

rx8 would look great in chrome but it's not practical for anything but a show car.

If you are doing it only for promotional purposes, then go for it. But remember it's still your car, so after the promoting is over, you'll have a chrome car.

The NFS Underground RX-8 that they use at shows has the chrome paint job on the veilside kit.
http://www.autoshow.permaisuri.com/C...20060330133937

So its already been done.
I suggest a very nice polished silver/gunmetal color. IMO, that would look much better than chrome.

Something like this...


LOL!! <-- randomly promoting my own rims.

I only think that some parts on the car should be chrome. But I really wouldn't go for a car that painted entirely chrome. But, I guess it's good if you are trying to get your name out there.

that NFS underground police car looks tacky. i think a full chrome 8 with a kit... other than the veilside... would look a lot better. anyways, to continue what i was saying earlier, if you show it, then would be alright, but as a daily driver... uggh, too much weight and too much easy to mess up.

I have seen our 8 in Crome with and without Mazdaspeed skirt in Game "Need For Speed - most wanted" before. it looks realistic and its way cool than colours we have now.

The chrome police rx8 looks nice.. it would look better if the hood and trunk was black, instead carbon fiber.
