Default Splitter/Sills Color

Do the majority of people prefer the splitter/sills black or getting the exterior black design package to make them body colored? While personal taste is a huge factor, did the color of the body impact the choice? Iíve decided on BRG for the color of the car.

Thank you in advance.

Depends on which sills your getting. If it's the wider ones of recent years my choice would be to remove them of make them black. Definitely not body colour under those conditions. If they are the older narrow ones then body colour can work ok. The sills as a general thought make the car look a little 'fat'. When narrow or black they look better because the recede in the minds eye.

Front splitter and rear defuser I like black, though my diffuser is body colour, I still like it. Again it's personal choice.

my car was all black. but when i got the car wrapped bright blue, i kept the front splitters, side sills and rear diffuser black. it gives it a more aggressive look without making the car look fatter as mentioned above.

Body color sills ruins the lines and make it look fat...just saying.

I prefer the body color sills and splitter, though I might change my mind if I had the fat sills;

I have the fat, body-colored sills and do not like them. But, the worst thing about them is that they are a magnet for dirt. I would like no sills better.

get them wrapped black and ceramic coated. I got a protection film put on mine and then coated now dirt just slides right off. anything that sticks on is just taken away with a quick rinse.

If you really dont like them they are quite easy to remove.

I believe there might be some rivets that need to be drilled out and replaced, but otherwise should be straight forward.

My car is a lease, no mods, no removing sills. Part of the reason I leased is so that I am not encouraged to make modifications. I almost spent as much on modifications to my Vette as I did buying the car....never again.
