Anyone has a picture of a Silver Pilot with the Gold Emblem set?

Just curious is if this is worth the money.
Definitely would get it on the White.

If anyone has this combo, please post a pic.
Pretty please:6:

I agree with the gold on white. Very sharp. I think I would need some real convincing to have them on Silver...

I think gold looks great on black, so long as it's not overdone. The emblems would look great, but any other gold accessories would tend to take away from the looks. Just my opinion.

You would think. But then again, Gold on Havasu DOES look
good...
Sorry Kruzo, but I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with you on this one. I'm gonna have to give a big :28: on the gold with the Havasu Blue. Check out the pictures of the Havasu with gold emblems that I posted in the gallery. I know its just a matter of personal preference. Here are my thoughts:

Nighthawk Black Pearl - :29:

Redrock Pearl - :29:

Starlight Silver Metallic - :28:

Sage Brush Pearl - :8: but leaning towards :29:

Sandstone Metallic - :28:

Tafetta White - :29:

Havasu Blue Metallic - :28:

Evergreen Pearl - :29:

Just my opinion. I have the gold emblems on my Black Currant Accord and I think they do a great job of setting off the color.

I guess my theory is gold on dark colors only (with the exception of the Tafetta in this case).

Soapplant,

I knew you had good taste! I agree with every one of your choices with the possible exception of the SageBrush (you were on the fence anyway). I think the SageBrush has enough "going on" in just the paint to confuse the situation with gold emblems. But I could be wrong.

I guess it is a local thing but I am with SoapPlant on this one. I was following his chart to a T and based on the Sage pictures would give it a gold :29: as well.

I just had mine installed today on Redrock Pearl...very sharp!!

Dealer said that on the green it looks the best!
re: Evergreen. I contemplated, then decided at the last minute not to have the gold emblems installed on my Evergreen. I agreed it would have looked good, especially from the rear. But the OEM emblems also look just fine, they match the wheels, and blend better with the headlights.

Yeah, come to think of it, you're probably right.
Of course, after you've intimidated everyone here, no one
will admit to owning SS with Gold emblem and post a
picture for me ;)

Yes, I am definitely intimidating, for sure! That's probably why I spent most of my high school and college days getting picked on relentlessly! That's why my wife tells me I pick on her all the time now! Wasn't I being "respectful" enough in my disagreement? And besides, I think I only intimidated you with respect to the Havasu Blue and not the Starlight Silver (ha, ha, ha)! And since you own the SS, that shouldn't be a problem, right! :(

Is there anyone else feeling a little intimidated, because, if so, I'll really try to be nicer? :(

I think like I said though, its in everyone's personal preference. If its any consolation I tried to get a picture of a SS for you, with the gold emblem from the "Build Your Pilot" page, but apparently the Gold Trim isn't listed under the exterior accessories. Sorry!

Its your Pilot, so do whatever you want!

Hey Leo, do you have the gold emblems on your Black Currant Accord? Think they might look nice?! :p
