    Does anyone have a link to a company that sells the grill rings for an 8p1 in black? I know I could spray them myself, but would rather just buy a set that will actually last more than 5 mins.

    Also....... I would also like the silver surround in black as well, is this something that is sold anywhere?

    many thanks

    thanks very much!

    What are peoples personal opinions on the colour - would matt or gloss best suit a black car?
