Okay Guys.
I am very reserved in my modifications. I'll be getting the Eibach's as soon as they are available in Jan or Feb. In the meantime I'm going to dis Peter Schreyer and improve the styling of the front end of the Stinger for that ultra exclusive LQQK!
Although your opinion won't change my plans, I am interested to see if the change makes the same impression on you as it does me. I think the blacked out chin valance makes it more sporty and better balanced with the muscular aesthetic of the side and rear views of the car. Comments please!

How about a mild splitter?

Sorry, makes it look a little like a Lexus... and I hate the latest Lexus designs. The guys on Grand Tour said it best... "hey Lexus... Hoover called... they want their vacuum (er, I mean car) back!"

I like the splitter idea. Though I have a REALLY steep driveway and I'm concerned about the stock lower lip scraping as it is! [:0]

You can wrap all the chrome areas.

The painted out black does nothing for me. With the sculpted shape of the front end it ill be tricky to get it "just right". It's all very well doing it in Photoshop, I'll wait with interest to see the finished job. Also wouldn't work as well with darker colors, such as my choice of Deep Chroma Blue

Here's another rendering of your idea.

I think it looks perfect as is but I would mind a front splitter and rear lip spoiler.

Perfect. Thanks [MENTION=284]KingLamoni[/MENTION]! I'll use this when I show it to the wrap guys. I'm not a Star Wars fan though the look does kind of borrow from 'The Force'. Original Star Trek or bust.

I know this is coming 2 years later.... But did you end up doing the wrap? I'd love to see the end result!

Just realized he'd posted them in another thread before. Thought I'd leave them here for future reference.
