Probably just a dealer installed kit. I see it all the time on Taurus' within the Detroit city limits. Assume what you will from that. :D

So does ford make gold blades and badges??? or does the dealership take them off and make them?? because this wasn't a spray paint job, it was done really well...

The owner could have had the gold electroplated on. It's very common...in fact, almost all gold trim is just electroplated plastic.

I see... just like cheap jewelery lol


So does everyone think it looks cheap and gawdy? Or eye catching classy?

I think it's cheap and gaudy...just the way Stever likes it!

I don't like the way gold looks on any color car. I also don't like chrome rims...I like lower gloss. The gold just makes the car look ghetto-fied!

It depends on how professionally it is done. Personally I don't like gold packages anymore, (mainly because I've seen too many people make it look cheap and gaudy by having their rims and the entire grill "dipped".) however if it's just the badges that's cool. Especially on a white,black or burgandy car.

Personally, I don't like it. It wouldn't look so bad if the wheels had SOME gold accents, but with the black, the gold , and the silver, just too busy.

I'm iffy on the gold on black..I'm not a "gold" color person lol I do like the silver on black..it makes it look classy. I saw a taurus with a wooden color blades and badges...it looked kinda cool....Did you want to do that to your car?

Nothings worse then a fake, padded top on a Taurus. Talk about ugly and cheezy.

Look on ebay under the sable section, there are a few on there with the padded top, and special badging.
