So I currently have a 2017 BE that looks fantastic in black.

The problem is, as we all know, that a black truck is impossible to keep clean especially in the snow belts where there is salt and crap on the roads for months on end. ...but clean 馃枻馃枻馃枻

I've ordered a '22 Touring (one down from the BE) in Modern Steel Metallic (MSM) and currently waiting for delivery. ETA end of August. Well as it turns out, there are two of these vehicles within 1hr of my house so I went and had a look in person. My first reaction in person? Meh. It just didn't grab my wallet and say take me home.

I've considered the other RL colours but keep coming back to the MSM for various reasons.

So, what can I do to add a little pizzazz to the MSM RL? I ain't buying wheels but open to pin stripes or something to give a bit of flash.

Photos? Suggestions?

Thanks.

Ditto. I texted my wife while I was looking at 'the truck and told her the chrome had to go...

I will tell you though... if they would make a METALLIC Black instead of the hideous piano black that they seem to be stuck on, that would be another color choice.. The beauty of black without the horrendous upkeep of piano smudge scratch magnet black
Honda has that fancy black in the BE.

Not a fan of msm, also meh on it. You could always wrap it and give it a totally different color. Just a thought.
@$60k Canadian I'm not looking to spend a lot to change the look. At this point I'm leaning towards vinyl wrapping the chrome black. I did some research and yellow if you can believe Is suppose to be an accent color for grey... That ain't going to happen.

I have to wonder if I'm going with the wrong colour if I'm trying to "come up with something" to make the truck look "sporty".

I've now found 3 MSM rl's around me but unfortunately my deal is with a dealer without any vehicles to trade.

To top it off none of the dealers with inventory will sell them without $3-4k of products, i.e. extended warranty, accessories, undercoating, paint protection, etc.

The dealers aren't asking over MSRP but they are making additional profit using their limited inventories.

I'm going to stick with the MSM RL after seeing a clean truck in the dealership.

Like @beaumountain did I'll likely hide the chrome.
