Too much white, needs some contrast. But if the owner is happy with it, that's all that matters.

Not crazy about the white on white on white but I sure love my white on white. And the car sure gets a lot of "wows".

There once was a time when a car manufacturer's paint shop took pride in being able to paint a car all the same color; and not charge the buyer an extra $995 for Option RPO code EFY for “vents, exterior, body-color painted. And BG's brainiac computerized paint shop STILL can't paint the rear bumper for that money! Million million dollar new paint facility and still the car has that bolt-on parts from JC Whitney look.

I'd be proud to call this monochrome monster "mine":

I think the white shows far more detail, a clearer view of the cars lines than all black, which show none.

The white is a great canvas to add stripes to.

Back in the day...I think this was one of the nicest looking C4's around...it still turns my head anytime I see one...but this is truly, white, on white, on white...(exterior + interior + rims)

I always hated the black lower bumper and wanted to paint mine...

But I ended up replacing it with carbon fiber so I went a different route.

I would not paint the vents though.

That's not really as bad since it has the black top and A and B pillars. That at least helps break up the monotony of all white.

The car in the OP just has way too much white going on for me.

I like it., especially the rear end getting matching paint.

I prefer the black contrast of the lower bumper, fender vents and hood vents. Breaks up all that white.

All right I'm sold on it. When ordering my C7 I will have to check off the box for body color vents. Thanks for the pictures.

Honestly, it could use more white. Maybe whitewalls next would complete the look?
