I have a deposit down on an Uyuni White Presitge with Black interior and love the look inside and out....except all the Chrome on the exterior. Is anyone considering doing something about all the chrome? Whether that is to make it black gloss and give it a “black optic” look like Audi does with the Q7 or putting on Xpel stealth to give the chrome a more matte/satin look to it?

I've placed an order. If I should get such, I'm seriously thinking about blacking out the chrome with black gloss. IMO, there's just too much chrome for my taste.

A ton of chrome everywhere on the car, wayyyy too much chrome to hide or wrap. I thought about blacking it out, but I ended up realizing it's just too much. However, I tinted the taillights which looks really good

Why do you say its too much to wrap? you don't think it would look right?

I personally like the blackout look, but chrome is considered part of the luxury theme of this car. In this case the GV80 has so many chrome pieces and trim that to black it all out seems a daunting overwhelming process.

Hey Gen1GV80- I agree - Too much chrome ! I followed your suggestion and pulled ALL the Rear badging off the car (myself with dental floss ) 2 days before I had my Green Cardiff - Gtechnique coated and Clear bra filmed . I haven't yet tinted the windows or rear lenses ... - That's for next summer !

I like it. Can you post another picture with it outside with different angles? I'm thinking about doing this when I get mine.

Here is a pic of my chrome delete. Color match all around except front grill. Did cover the lower chrome trim of the grill.

Beautiful ride.
Where did you have the delete do. E?
I too have a white GV80 and the shops around me say they will have trouble matching the white. Do you know what brand/color they used.
Thank you for your help.

It was done by a local shop (10-4 Wrap) where I live in Destin FL. I don’t recall which one we ended up selecting but it was either 3M or Avery gloss white. It doesn’t match exactly with the Alta white but it’s really close. Can’t noticed the difference unless you get really close and look for it. None of my friends noticed it.

Where did you get your vinyl for the tail lights? I just ordered a Mauna Red 3.5 and i wanted to black out the taillights for contrast. Laminex has them for the GV70. Is that where you got yours?
