I will say that with an all white diffuser (like SD), I really like the semi gloss black taillight look. Pops against the white. I'm a bit unsure which I like more in terms of black shade when against the matte black diffuser. I think yours look good already though.
About the skid plates. I've noticed they aren't really rock chip prone. The rear isn't at all, obviously, but the front when is good on mine. Maybe there are tiny ones but you really can't even notice from there, unless you crawl down and are anal, which I am.
Thx guys, now that I've had the car for a week, I'm getting more and more used to the look. The black pipes add a unique element that I've rarely seen on any other S models. I think that's part of the fun of modifications - it sets your car apart from what in the future will not be that uncommon: a White Macan S. As I said I have 6 of them in my neighborhood already, along with a slew of white Cayennes. Most of these cars have the brushed chrome pipes which look great, but the black is a little more stealth and sporty, and it fits my overall build. If I get tired of them I can powder them in a new color or just order the sport pipes. The sport pipes are chrome plated stainless steel which gives that black chrome look. Very cool. Here's a couple more pics for anyone interested, it's still very tough to get a true representation of them with iPhone. I'm considering the Suncoast smoked out film for the taillights next up. The stock lights are nice but maybe just a little tint would look good.Personally, I think you did well by not painting the rear skid plate. To my eye, the rear diffuser/skid plate should be either black, stainless, or carbon fiber. But, to each his own.....of course. Nice write-up.
