    Find yourself a second chrome trim, then do it! That way if you don't like you can swap it back - I've done the same thing for my rear diffuser - or, although i'm not sure of this, you could go to a print / design shop and have it wrapped in some black memory film to see what it's like, then if you don't like it just pull the film off.....

    Chris i'm the same. I have bought spare top and lower grill's as i have painted one set satin black i also have a spare brushed alloy interior cabin trim (full set) also bought a used cam cover which has now had a make over for next summer. I was thinking of covering the rear alloy trim with satin black vinly.

    I did mine Avus silver to match the wheels/mirrors/door rings etc, but that wouldn't really work for you.

    How about wrapping it in CF to look a bit different?

    Nah it's my fault mate - I thought I had struck gold as for some reason I thought you had an Avant - dunno why

    I'm warming up to the idea of Satin Black vinly as it's easy on easy off.

    You need a small flat screwdriver and carefully starting one end prise it away from the bumper. Its a fiddle and very fragile, and there are LOTS of little tabs which break very easily!

    It would be easy for a man of your caliber to take it off Colin.
