Default Show off your bumper lettering

I'm having a hard time deciding on whether or not to pull the trigger on some front and rear bumper lettering inserts. Give me some ideas

Yes, I got the thing in the center too. Looks way better.

I don't like enhancer plates.

I agree with the chrome stainless steel. I had torch red with the chrome letters.

Here is the lettering on the back of my car - it's the older version of the Brakelight Red that Ecklers used to sell. They do not make that particular pattern anymore, but still sell a color called Brakelight Red. I much prefer the old color over the new though.

This pic shows what was on my car when I bought it - high polished stainless steel lettering:

Where did you get the black chrome letters? I may have to go that route if it looks good on black.
