Buy the black grilles and keep the chrome ones IMO. Then you can switch as you like.

When I get home I'll take a pic of my GF's car next to mine. She still has the chrome grilles and mine are black. Both are black cars but hers is metallic.

Plastidip. If you don't like it, just peel it off.

if you like chrome keep it...

personally I like the matte black, even the glossy black

but I agree with MetsFan.

Plastidip it and if you like it then keep it and if not well.... it was only $10 for the can.

I wrapped mine in carbon fiber vinyl.. I think it looks wonderful. It depends on the color of your car, and alternately your wheels and even window trim.

I think the black grills looks much much better on a black car.
