"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"
There are innumerable things that owners have done to their cars that they thought were beautiful.
While others have wondered just what drugs must have inspired such actions!
That question is going to garner a plethora of answers like you have never seen!

That was like asking, "what is the best ice-cream flavor?"

Opinions are like Belly-Buttons, Everbody's got one!

So, to answer your question, I do not know.
Try it and see if you like it!
What kind/style/color were you thinking?
The fake chrome look?

I had mine coated w/ Opti-Coat Pro+, along with the entire car and all chrome. I did remove several parts and had them coated individually rather than on the car (including the bezels) It gives a slight matte finish in the sun, not bad, just slight. A small price to pay for years or protection.

I hate waxing cars, I have had all my cars ceramic coated now. I've never had a wax job bead up so nicely in the rain as the coatings! Also doing the rinse-less OptiCoat washes is SO much easier than traditional soap and water washing.
