The shine will depend on the paint..and polishing.

I personally feel a full Black Dio with some small pinstriping in chrome stickers would look great

But yes that Black needs to be Shiny enough to see your own reflection on it.

I think if you are paying to get something done..Dont go for the stock new look..Make it pesonalized.

hmm.. Thanks. Have already gone through with a local paint centre. THey showed me an example plastic black paint slab and promised the same colour on my bike (else money back ). Painting scheduled for this sunday.

They dont do stickering. I have to find that elsewhere.

Post some pics after the paint job is done.
Some custom stickering will make it look better than the one the picture, and also, more importantly, make it stand out.

Try to get the original sticker from Honda dealers... (I hope they sell it).

Im setting out to get stickers this sunday (@ pudupet, chennai) and re-scheduled the painting for apr 1st (after exams).

@gendarmee, can I have ideas of custom stickering jobs ? Anyone else here with custom Dio's ?

Pictures of custom jobs will be helpful.
