New member here. Just picked up a '20 Cross Sport V6 SE w/ Technology (but not the R Line). I'm not a fan of the silver-colored lower grill on the front of the car. I'm wondering if anyone else has a similar dislike, and how you might have solved it. I'm thinking of buying some cheap matte black wrap to put on the silver and see if I like the blended black look. Also, thinking of having it painted the body color (pure gray). I know the R Line would have solved the problem, but I actually prefer the matte black trim on three sides of the regular SE. Thanks in advance for any ideas/comments.

Agreed! My car is white an I plan on wrapping the upper grill chrome black but not sure about the lower grill for now. If you wrap it, post it up I would love to see it. I'm also planning on having my head and taillights tinted as well!

I did wrap it with some cheap wrap to see if I liked it. Picture attached. I do like it, so I removed the wrap, and am having it professionally painted matte black.

Looks fantastic. VW should take note.
Thanks man! I agree I don't get why there is that gray plastic that matches nothing on the car. I'm not 100% sure about the doing the grill black now. For now it will stay chrome but I have a feeling it will be black along with the side mirrors.

I have a '21 Atlas SE in gray. I color-matched it with the body color: Painted the Trapezoid on the Lower Front Bumper
