    the rear challenge engine grill from black to body colour; asthetically somehow I'm sure this would be a small improvement to an otherwise perfect car ?

    that yellow CS prompt me to think it might look good on a red scud car, having always liked the black car because the grill is body tone. maybe i should try it

    do you think you reduce a CS's value if you paint the grill?

    I saw a red w/ stripe where the guy painted it. IMO - it didn't look very sharp. Kind of "blended" the back side of the car and made the lines wierd.

    Get an after market Challenge grill for $1,000(installed) and have it powder coated or painted. You won't reduce the value because you can always have the original put back on.

    Edit: Here are some pictures I found on ebay. The grills on this 360 are powder coated. I don't like this one.

    I think it looks better with a black grill the body colored ones look tacky.

    Forza,

    The one exception is the green Stradale with the grill done in green. First of all...I thought the car would not look good. Then I thought the gren grill must REALLY suck.

    In person it was a knock out! Car was at Ferrari of Orange County
