I think it would depend on the other accent colors on your car. A black grill would look good if you had black wheels and a silver grill better with silver wheels and trim.

imho, I'd say go with the black. The polished aluminum would be too much silver up front, but that's just my .02 :D
+1 imho, i'd leave the grill the way it is(looks good already) and just paint the chevy emblem silver to match the car. I went back and fourth on what to do with mine but in the end i think my decision to go with polished aluminum with the silver car came out great. two totally different cars though. I later added a polished aluminum lower grill too, but that was too much. Took it back off within a week.

well I decided to go with the polished aluminum and after I installed I questioned my decision and thought maybe I should have gone black. But after a day or two I started to like it and enjoyed the compliments. So now I ordered the lower grille and will post pics after I install....thanks for your opinions

yeah
as hotrodhoodrat said

looks really sweet

i would not do any more to the front

look perfect now

if you do more it might look less perfect

like climbing a montain: when you have reached the top, it does not matter which way you go, you will go downwards in each case...

Did you remove the front clip to install the grill. I have mine just waiting for warmer weather to install.

this is the overlay grille so you have to just remove the bowtie and ss emblem. I added a billet bowtie and painted the bottom grille black. I will post an updated picture soon

Mine is an overlay as well but I dont like the mounting hardware that came with it. And since I have some front facing led strips that will be placed on the bottom portion. I will have to remove my front clip to install and wire mine up. Since I would be there already will wire up my turn siginals as parking lights/running lights..
