Your silver car just happens to match the A-pillar.
. . . except the Solstice Coupes. For the Solstice coupes, the frame and windshield surround were painted the same as the body color.

What are "tubs"? Is this a typo or a piece of the vehicle? I'm not familiar with the term.
I mean the area where the driver/passenger sit - from dash bulkhead to rear bulkhead & between the doors.

Oh OK. I learned something today.
So we're sitting in a tub like the nursery rhyme - Three Men in a Tub - except we can only get 2 men in ours.

Or one man and one girl - my granddaughter!
The nursery rhyme says "Rub a dub dub, three men in a tub".
It's harder to say "Rub a dub dub, one man and one woman in a tub".

I like the idea of color matching the windshield. On black cars makes it look even more aggressive, which i like.

I'll say, though, other than white walls i can't think of anything worse to put on a Sky than eyelids. To me and to me only it just looks too teeny bopper. Like what i saw teenagers do to their souped up Civics when i was growing up.

Generally I prefer the silver, but I agree with you about black. It would match the top instead of a contrasting color between the 2 blacks.
I personally don't like the red in the first picture. It looks out of place. Just my personal preference.
