    black grille definitley! I painted mine dark grey to match the plastic trim, but you could do either as your car is black. I want my new facelift headlights black like that but i daren't start taking them apart....

    Should look good mate, cover it in black insulation tape first, will give you a rough idea of what it'l look like.

    No, just getting detailed! lol. I bought the car with the black headlight surrounds so i honestly couldnt tell ya. I believe you can buy aftermarket black lights.... dunno if youd be able to be your original xenons in though. Scott
