They should offer either the car in that color or an option that paints all the carbon flash parts the car color, ideally both.

Only reason I would take the car in NRB is that it blends those parts better.

Any darker color helps to hide this curious application of dark trim. A beautiful car like corvette with a big black spot on the hood, reminds me of getting dressed for the prom and having a big pimple on your face my C7 will go directly to the body shop for color match.

I believe the Blade Silver will look pretty good with all the carbon flash including the mirrors and spoiler.

I'm not digging the flash carbon look on the spoiler. As mentioned already, the spoiler does look like an add-on already. Making it stand out more dosen't make sense. Making it body color makes it look more "purposeful".

The black mirrors also doesn't make sense to me. I love the color of the car I'm driving. Sometimes I like to look at the mirror right there on my door and just admire the color for a second. There's a feeling I get that I can't really describe when when I look at the driver's side mirror while driving. It's the shape and color that reminds me what a fantastic car I'm driving. I just can't explain it.

Well Ferrari and lambs have done it, currently and in the past
Secondly there have been several innovations that Ferrari has copied from corvette. I have both American and Italian vehicles and each have their areas where they excel at. So Corvette should not limit itself to what European cars may are may not be doing.

Default I think it looks great

To each his own, I think it looks great on certain color combos, like the crystal red and with the white...
