    This is why these features come in "options". Some people want them, others don't...

    Not a big fan of blacked out cars. The standard Continental has presence, this one doesn't.

    i'm not into the "murdered-out" look whatsoever. and not on this car. Contrast highlights, however small, make a big difference than just a big ink blot on wheels. I see the side-strakes were left alone, but its not enough.

    I DO like the black grille insert...the wheels make for too much black...likely a brushed metal finish would suffice on the wheels & would be a big improvement... maybe even in a mid-tone, say, titanium that still offers contrast...IMO

    I don't understand why you asked for people's opinions, then. Why bother?

    Welll, at least you stirred up some interesting conversation, Sal.

    I don't understand the reasoning behind your question. I didn't tell anyone they had to like the blacked out look. Some people like it; some people don't. That's fine. Why does "This is why these features come in 'options'" make you ask why I bothered asking what people thought of the look? People are giving me their opinion. Great. That's exactly what I wanted.

    I picked up an engine oil filter for my son's Dodge Grand Caravan yesterday. The dealership had a Dodge SRT in the showroom and it was blacked out and had the red brake calipers, as Pasadena Lady thinks the Continental should have. It certainly has presence, like Darth Vader, a sinister look.

    I wonder how much it costs to do the blacked out look?
