Chrome = bling. Bling = bad. Stick with the black ones!

Glad you got them fitted ok.

The black ones definitely look better! When I first fitted them to mine I was unsure but after they'd been on for a bit and I looked back at old pictures with the chrome grills I was so glad I changed them!

Sorry but I disagree. I actually prefer the silver ones. Your car is cool with them fitted and looks a lot classier in a refined power type way. The black on a silver grey saloon look a little after market IMO.

But then I guess life would be boring if we all liked the same stuff right?!

I like the black grilles, I'd loose the front number plate holder however, freshens the front up allot.
