anyone else see a sport with the black painted to match?

I hope not....:D
I'm getting all the black trim around the bottom painted white to match the rest of the shagn wagon.
I will post pics of it done as soon as I get it back. Stopped by the collision shop today and took these pics..
Rims, exhaust, wood grain steering wheel and I should be all set.. I think!

When the 2011 MY was released there was a member here who did his Limited all white on the lower plastic trim, I thought it looked superb.

They should do that on the 16 Sport to set it further apart from the other models.

Thats kinda why I prefer the Tuxedo Black

Dont forget to do the door handles.

I'm going to leave the two outer side sections of the bumper "mouth" black as well as the whole rear lower section where the tow hitch cover and exhaust tips are.

Hi Tmack I think painting you roof rails also in white would make your sport standout even more :)

Not my personal preference but it looks very clean and if you are happy then it's perfect.
