LOL, maybe its the black granite everyone is liking there more than the chrome. I also have a black granite nox, but no chrome, and ... everyone here likes how the black mirrors and bumpers and even door handles match, they wouldn't with the chrome. The one saving grace of getting black (the wife's input). We saw a BG nox with chrome at the lot and it didn't do much for me. The black paint actually made me LESS interested in the chrome not more ... if I had gotten red for example, I think I would have found the chrome more appealing. Chrome in a few places, might have been nice, but ... there was just too much in other places, particularly the mirrors and the front, it all netted out to a wash at best for me.Black Granite LTZ said:As you can see by the responses, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
On our Black Granite 2011 LTZ the chrome looks great. At least to me and the wife it does. Everyone has commented how they like the chrome and black. Even some stranger at the gas station commented on how much he liked it.
But obviously the chrome package isn't for everyone. It all boils down to you. If you like it and think it looks good then it doesn't matter what others think. And as pointed out you do get the ultrasonic parking assist which is very handy.
Most the Nox/terrain "chrome" rims are "plastic chrome". No chance of it delaminating at the rim, because it doesn't touch the tire.Old Lar said:Is it chrome or plastic chrome? Somehow, I'd have difficulty paying $800 for plastic chrome, mirror covers, grill and door handles. The last time I had GM chrome rims, the chome delaminated and the tires leaked at the rims. I found replacement chrome rims at a junkyard a $200/rim. This was after about two years of ownership. The replacement rims had the inside stripped of chrome so that there was no more chrome to delaminate.
