That red needs to extend into/replace your chrome belt line and grill. My opinion only, but I think that by doing that you would have a wickedly unique piece that works really well on the contrast.

I wanted to do the same concept on my Ti by extending the chrome accents to the grill, but after blacking out my wheels and such it became glaringly evident that the chrome would have to go.

Awesome!

Edit: Also, I alluded to going in a slightly different direction in a previous post. What I was going to attempt to do was lay the stripe through the plate area to give it a near continuous look. Seems how I am going monochromatic in the following weeks, maybe someone else wants to try it...

If you want to give it a go, I would recommend cutting out the portion where the elevation on the grill changes. This will give the plate area a recessed look, which I think would be more natural than a continuous line from one side of the grill to the other. Just an idea to rid that blank plate area.
