I was browsing through used listings.

I noticed chrome wheels on a GT2 from the thumbnail.



I went in for a closer look.

That's... not good.

But it got worse.

I had forgotten about all the Escalades and Tahoes of the mid-2000's with fake chrome on every edge.

Someone out there gave this trend new life on our beloved Stinger.

No surprise to me that it was traded in to a Cadillac dealership.

So. Much. Fake. Chrome.

Such contouring. Clearly a perfectionist.

To think - someone went into a store, exchanged money for this fake vent, had it painted to match the car, and then taped it on.

I challenge you to find a worse Stinger.

No, wait, I don't. My eyes can only take so much.

Lol. I wish I could link to that Korean abomination posted a few months ago. Absolutely in a special category of hideous. This offering looks pristine by comparison. I agree that it is ugly, but not to the point of looking like a horrible joke gone bad. Just overdone.

I agree that one a while back took the cake. This one just leaves me speechless and begs me to ask WHY?.

I've looked it over again and can't stop laughing. It just gets worse the longer you look at it. In a Caddy dealership? Really!? LOL!!! :laugh:

The worst juxtaposition is the spoiler "trim" in the second pic from the bottom. That, is really bad.

There are certain cultures where this kind of bling is desirable.

... I just wish whoever did this had never discovered the Stinger. Heaven forbid, they have friends who've seen it.

oh my... I would almost hope the dealer would take some time to remove most of that, as it would hopefully peel right off. one can hope lol
Peel it off, heh! They put it ON. And a crappy job it is too. Fitment is rough all over the place.
