Looks unique but far too flashy/gaudy for my taste.
I prefer to stay low key and keep things looking stock.

I think you mean “far too AWESOME”, amirite?! 😉

Nah, I get totally get what you mean man. I’ve had a Lexus, an Audi, 2 BMWs (1 an M), and 2 Mercedes (1 an AMG), but none felt special/unique enough on the road. I see dozens of each brand every day on the road. Got this Italian fella to have something different, and while at first I was just going to do some minor changes (de-chroming and that’s about it), I figured that since I bought this thing to have fun and be different, I might as well have some fun and make it different.

I also agree all charm is gone

I prefer 100 times when it is all looking stock.

Personally, I have no problems at all if you wanna stand out in the crowd or you want the understated look. For me, it is the latter of the two, but at the same time I love this about cars, you make it the way 'you' want it. I have no problems with the changes you made to the car and I think it looks like a cool Ghibli. Glad you are enjoying being playful with the car. They are the only real toys we can have fun with so do what makes you happy, it was your $100000 that bought it lol!

On a separate note, I need to know how you changed the colour of the trident at the front. PM me

I think that's useful knowledge you should share with everyone in public.

Car looks unique - nice job. Door handles wrapped black would have been a nice extra touch as well.

That was an idea, but the shop doing it said they thought having them wrapped the same color as the body would help the “directional flow”. I tend to agree, but could always see what they look like in black later on as well.

Some closer pictures of the tridents that color-matched the body, per PM request:
