painted front license plate holder

Has anyone painted their front license plate holder on their cars. Mine is currently black and I think it would look a lot better if it was painted the same colour as the car??

Any thoughts???

I wasn't talking about the actual license plate frame. I was talking about the holder of the front license plate that attaches it to the bumper??

It would certainly look better. The one I have is a flat black. When I put it back on I'll consider having it cleaned and painted to match the bumper. It will then be glossy and blend in better.

Be careful guys! The one they have fits the e90 NOT e92! I know on **********s they have it for e92 too but it doesn't fit! I bought it and its WAY too big for the e92. Don't know about e93 but would imagine the bumper is closer to e92 than e90.

The one from BMW for the E90 is WAY too big, too.
