Default chrome - your opinion

HI Guys..
Well we are new PT Cruizer owners. Bought a 2007 last weekend..
I would like to hear several opinions on a question I have..
The PT we bought is the 'cool vanilla' color.
I been thinking about adding some chrome to the exterior..
My question is do you all think that the chrome will show up well enough to bother spending my money on it.
I know on a red or blue PT it would really stand out.. but just wasn't sure about the chrome on white. Hate to spend much on the outside if it's just going to 'blend in'
You folks have obviously been involved and saw more of these than I have.. so I just wanted to throw that out there

Thanks.. and I look forward to being part of the PT fellowship

Yeah chrome looks good on white, just don't get carried away with too much stick on stuff.

I have a cool vanilla PT with some chrome on it and it looks fine. However, I tend to think chrome looks better on darker colored cars than lighter colors.

I put the chrome scuff guards on the door handles and trunk handle, and head light and tail light rings and like it a lot.

I also think black trim on white looks good too. The windows on my PT are tinted pretty dark and I did not put any chrome pillar covers on it because I felt the tinted windows and black trim looked better that way.

Here is one of my car. This is not the greatest pic because my car was rather dirty at the time. Will try to get more pics tomorrow.

yeah.. I'll have to watch "going over board"

I'm thinking about adding these exterior pieces
Antenna Bezel
Head light and tail light rings
windshield washer covers
fuel door cover
pillar post
rear hatch trim (bottom piece)
4 piece bumper trim (if I can get one for a 2007)
5 pc door handle cups
rear bumper center insert (again, If I can get one for correct year)
door plate sills
center hood trim (up center of hood from chrysler emblem to windshield)

hhuumm does this sound like to much bling for outside... could get expensive..
anyone know of places that sell all this stuff. I'l probably have to price shop to get the best prices seeing as I want all this stuff.. lol
So far I know of PT Boutique, Race & street, auto Truck Toys, and CMS..
Anyone know of any other places that I could check and shop rices

Disregard the "page under construction" wording and click on "exterior" in the header to get to the PT page.
