    Personally i hate it. Its like tarting it up with bling. Some bits of the car arent available dechromed from the factory either, so cant really "just buy a car without"

    I also hate silver cars and silver wheels.

    Just boring an unimaginative, modern day equivalent to a beige car from the 70's.

    It's hard enough to find a decent car anyway, without narrowing your options down even more! Had I bought it from the factory I would have specified it dechromed, so it's no different.

    Been trying to find a decent set of black roof rails for months now, but no-one seems to want to sell me any. The rails ruin the look of the car!
