Default I need PT advice/opinions

Is it not cool to do exterior chrome mods on an Inca Gold Dream Series PT Cruiser? I've added a chrome grille, and chrome door cups. I will be putting on my chrome speers this week. In addition, I'm planning to do the stainless steel wheel fenders and the chrome headlight/taillight covers. I've seen several other people with the Inca Gold Dream Series and theirs are still in the original stock style. Is it just that Im being different or going against the grain? So far, I like how the chrome looks, but I dont want to mess Goldie up. What do you guys think????PicsArt_1362774082907.jpg

The dreams are considered rare. That said, modding a vehicle is always a personal thing that others will love or hate depending on tastes. If it is removable without damage to the vehicle then do as you like. After all you need to please you. Keep the parts removed for mods in case you change back latter.

Okay, you ask for opinions. But do you also want to hear negative opinions ?

I think the Inca Gold color should be enough of a mod..I would strip all the chrome, specially that grill.

That's my honest opinion:

This is how I would keep it if it was mine.

Thank you for your honest opinion! However, I just feel that the gold needs to be toned down a bit. In a few months, Im doin a two-tone root beer paint above the beltline

I like spears and door cups. The door cups are practical more than anything. Not sure what it is called but I have seen a spear like thing for the middle of the hood mating with the Chrysler emblem that I think looks good. I hate (strong word) the chrome grills, especially on the HO turbo models.

No doubt some rude individual will hand out some flak for bastardizing a could be rare car someday BUT bottom line it is your car you paid for it and do what makes you happy to own it.

Hey their LovingMyPTCruiser,

First off, welcome to the Forum. Some people look at it as you shouldn't because in the end it is a limited production special edition which does add to its rarity, but for me, I say your cool to do what you want so long as it makes you happy. I mean while it is a cool car and we all love our rides, at the end of the day it is going to take many years before anyone will see any kind of a moderate return on its rarity due to limited production and when its all said and done it is a PT, and will never be sought after in the same context as something like an old school one of three configuration Hemi Cuda or so forth. I have a good friend who just finished building one back to full factory spec for an NBA Player for a cost of $290,000. As much as I love my PT, I am pretty confident in saying I don't think the PT will ever be that type of investment vehicle.

Its for this reason that I decided when I got my Dream Cruiser Series 2 that I was just going to do what makes me happy. Here is my baby.



So I say go ahead and go against the grain. Do what you want, enjoy, and don't worry bout what anyone else thinks.
