Nice photo comparison.
Only AUD $450 for this option. On certain colours I think this is a must, definatey white or silver which are the colours I'm thinking of.
$614.25 after LCT and stamp duty :) Wife says no and I haven't even told her it's a cost option yet. Same money buys the online services which enables Google POI search for the satnav, internet music etc

The contrast works well on lighter coloured cars though, which I guess is why they premiered a blue car with black trim and a black car with chrome trim:

$270 option here. Im doin it. Not a fan of fake chrome and i think that the only chrome on the whole vehicle?
Apart from the badges on the rear, yes :)

The black trim option is meant to include "rear bumper trim strip for vehicles with exterior colour Black or Jet Black Metallic" - but I can' tsee anything on the rear bumper change in the 3D configurator?

Same here, also white on black order for us. My first expected mod will be to black out the rear badging so there's no chrome on the car at all.

What's the best way to black out the rear badging? Plastidip?

Yep... As much as some people cringe at the idea of spraying PlastiDip on a P-Car, it's very easy and reversible if you change your mind later.

Before:



During:



After:





It's been almost a year to the day since I dipped it, and a spray wash about every time the car is driven. The job is still top-notch. About 10 coats, or 1/2 of a US $4.95 can. :D

Thanks guys. It really is super easy to do this. The dip sticks to the plastic badge material, and comes right off the paint. In the job I showed above, I let it set up until dry, and then started peeling off the masking tape. The overspray that sits on the paint around the badges just peels right up, leaving the covered badge behind. I then used a toothpick to peel up the overspray inside the letters like 'a'.

There are a ton of videos on YouTube that show exactly how it's done. It's completely safe and completely reversible if you goof up or just change your mind later on.
