Default Factory Look or Mod it?

Will you keep Vette EXTERIOR factory look or to Mod it? - Factory meaning all types base, Z06, Z51, and leaving it Factory. (not even light black outs)..NOTE: Last choice should say: NO, I may venture later.

I’ll be adding a front splitter and side skirts to a Stingray so technically those would be mods.

I really like mine the way it is, so I'll leave it.

I love to modify my cars. My Vette looked so good just how it was when I bought it, it really doesn't need much.

Blacked out Oracle led markers and tinted rear deflectors.
Window tint is not an option, it is a necessity!
Black tips with the Borla Atak
Lowered on stock bolts
And eventually new rims

In terms of “mods”, I added Forged wheels, window tint, clear side markers, and a custom painted hood stinger to match the factory Shark Gray vents. I’m now considering extending the custom stripe onto the roof and back hatch. Everything else is pretty much stock.
