Berlingo VTR to ''XTR'' look
#1
Photo 
I got the 2009 Berlingo, and did not like the ''Taxi'' look. 
I decided to go for ''XTR'' styling with some black panels. 
I did the front and mirrors so far, Matt Black spray paint.
Sides and back to follow soon. I will probably get the bumper bit behind the Numberplate black as well.

Agree you have done a great job but I'd actually prefer to have my 2010 XTR which is the Citroen metallic gold colour with black panels all gold if I could!

This is totally personal preference. I like the more rugged look of the black grille and bumpers on a berlingo, but we're it a c5 say, much prefer then colour coded. However had I done this car I think I would have got the bits wrapped, not painted, it would give you a chance to return it to original if you wanted. Or used plastidip. I have no experience ot it but I think it peels off leaving the original paint intact.

Looks good, did you use any sort of specialist matt black paint? My 2008 XTR need some of those front panels refurbishing and I'm think of just re-spraying them completely after seeing your efforts.
