blacked out grilles

Hey guys,
I blacked out my 330 grilles (like seen on this forum), and they look great. However, I sprayed with about 4 coats of clear-coat, but I'm still getting significant numbers of rock chips, and now the chrome is showing thru in about two or three places.
1) should I re-paint and re-clear coat? If so,how many coats of clear coat will protect against rock chips?
2) I knowyou can get blacked out grilles and body colored surrounds for the E46... DO you think we'll see something like that for the E90 in the near future? I'd probably go with that rather than keep re-painting.

I love my car!
