I'm not just talking about "chromed" parts. I mean the whole "paintjob", which seems to be be designed to reflect the environment as to basically be a mirror (somewhat depending on the color).
I don't think I've ever seen a car with "non-mirrory" painting.
Is this just cheaper to do or something? Is it considered more aesthetically pleasing? Is it even a safety measure somehow?
I don't understand why cars have to reflect the entire environment, almost as if they were fully "chromed". (I also don't quite understand the purpose of chrome parts.)
