chrome costs 10 time what paint does.


Looks beautiful to me...the glass lid is fantastic!!

Nice,.. really nice!
I didnt say it IS cheap, I said it LOOKS cheap. Seems like every mofo with their souped up Hondas has chrome, and you want to stand out with your lambo dont you ;). Chrome just doesnt tickle my fancy thats all. I prefer the rim-style of the R-GT.

I'm not a big fan of chrome wheels either. However, on certain colors, chrome looks good. This color, I believe the name for it is "Azzurro Aquarius Metallic," and black work well. This color is one of those that must be seen in person.

Chrome does cheapen a Lambo's look, after seeing chrome in every rap video by people living like ghetto supastars the look is really played out....Kinda like putting chrome spinner hubcaps on a Hyundai-it just doesnt work!

But the color is beautiful and the car looks great! :)

I'm not usually a fan of any 'after-market' wheels. When the designer is penning the car, and they design the wheels in line with the overall 'look', it's usually as good as it gets. Of course, there are exceptions. But chrome, spinners etc. can be so vulgar. I noticed David Beckham has chromes on his new Gallardo... But then he's also been known to step out in a skirt. No offence intended to the original poster, it's a matter of taste and your Merci is stunning in every other respect.

I don't like chromed wheels too, IME looks like a diecast toy for kids, perhaps that's the reason why we feel them as being cheap.

I to did not care for chrome wheels, BUT on this color combo it is AWSOME!!!

Everyone is right the pictures do not do it justice, this is a one of a kind car with a one of a kind color.

Has tubi exhaust also!!!, ran strong in the high 180's !-5 to 33 in So Cal.

Now its at Al and Steves in Gilroy for some tweaking, to hopefully get 600hp out of it?

Thanks for all the nice comments, it was great in SD see you all soon! :wave:

How you going to get 600hp out of it? Turbo kit? What about the clutch/engine management/etc.?
