Torn between chrome and gloss black grills?

I have been contemplating this for a long time. My car Monaco blue and I can not decide what grill to get. I keep going back and forth and can never make up my mind. I think the chrome adds some good contrast that pulls the headlights together but I do love the gloss black grills too. Help me decide!

Chrome:





Black, couldn't find any pics with gloss black.:

if you have gloss shadowline trim on the sides, go gloss black.

I have matte black trim, but I hate the matte black grills.
