Picked up MY15 SRT Today on the GC:)

Picked up my SRT today on the Gold Coast, Australia.
Its Cherry Red/Pearl Coat with sun roof(Must have on Gold Coast)
Put 100km on it today just enjoying the ride.
Have uploaded a few images of the SRT and would appreciate any feedback on what I could do to this to give it a bit more visual appeal.(Don't particularly like the chrome)
I have found a powder coater here that has access to black chrome powder(From the USA), so was going to do the wheels for starters.
Any thoughts/feedback would be appreciated.
Mick

Looks awesome! I'm not a chrome fan either - I'm in the process of blacking out all the badging. If you want to stay OEM, you can order black painted versions of both Jeep logos, the SRT, the side Grand Cherokees, the chrome grill rings and the chrome rings surrounding the fog lights. Planning to install all of these next week. There isn't an OEM option for the replacing the chrome trim around the windows. I've order black gloss 3M to do those. There's several videos of people that have done this and it looks great and seems relatively easy to do. Good luck. Most of all enjoy the journey as much as the destination!

Thanks for the feedback. I have started the process of debadging/blacking out(Have attached a couple of pics) Would like to hear/see how your blacking out of the chrome trim around the windows go as I like the idea. Got my wheels Black Chrome powder coated and am happy with the look. Was going to get the rings from USA in black later this month. Love the car, first one I've owned that I look forward to driving

Looks like we are on the same path. Still waiting on my black license plate, but pretty much done with everything else. The trim turned out pretty well. I was super critical when I first put it on and looking at it from 6 inches away. With everything else done, it just blends in which is exactly what I wanted. Took me about 3 hours to do all the trim - I got much faster as I went along. Here's a few pics.

Appreciate the comments. They(SRT-WK2) really are a pleasure to drive.
My office is only 4km(2.5 miles) from my home, thinking of getting another office further from home.
Phinam love your blacked out trim!
I'm definitely going to 3M the trim, like the idea that if I change my mind I can reverse the process.
Have you done anything under the bonnet?
I had an Injen CAI in my garage for 2 months before I got the car.
That's all I've done under the hood.
Cheers

That looks fantastic! Great work. Have me thinking about blacking mine out now!

Haven't done anything under the hood - wish I knew more in that area to explore a little, but unfortunately I don't. I am seriously looking at a new exhaust system. Want something with more of a deep rumble - seems like the SRT is missing in this area. At the same time, I don't want anything that is obnoxiously loud. From my research, I'm considering the Magnaflow #15064. It's a difficult choice, I've watched tons of videos with all types of exhaust systems but it's impossible to really gauge from those due to so many variables in how they were recorded.
