Need a few opinions...

One of my neighbors pointed this out to me while we were having a long discussion about painting my wheels (I think powder coating is the right term), calipers, Honda emblems, and some of the glossy trim on the front and back...

Many of us are NOT a fan of the glossy wheels, etc...I found a guy who can paint the emblems and trim and my local Honda shop can do the calipers and rims. The cost for the calipers is about $500 and each wheel about $150. And I’d worry the plastic trim will peel or bubble.

And - there is so much glossy trim on the Elite AWD! Has anyone done this and kept 90% of the gloss? How does it look with flat matte wheels and the gloss all over?

And would this void the warranty?

I wouldn't bother painting the calipers. That would just call more attention to the brakes, which look comically small when compared to the massive 20" wheels.

Please be careful with the front emblem. I was going to cover it a 20% tiny since 100% black did not look good IMO. But I learned the a radar sensor for the Collision Mitigation is behind the front emblem. I decided I did not want to mess with that. ....BTW - I put blacking nuts on my grey Touring wheels which IMO look a lot better than the chrome ones
Dealer wanted $150 for 20. Found them on Amazon for $35. DPAcessories. These are "ball" or spherical seat nuts which us what the PP has. Most aftermarket wheels and lug nuts have 60° conical seats. The DPA ones are for Porsches. They are the correct thread size, seat type, and depth.....Looking fwd to see what you decide to do with the rear emblem..
