    What are my options to turn my current chrome roof rails to black? I have a black grille, tinted black windows so I'm thinking black roof rails will complete the look? Tell me if I'm being stupid.

    Ive seen a few 8P3 with black rails, are these standard or modified?

    Thanks

    From what I've seen and read I'm not convinced with that stuff, what about a Matt black wrap? Could they be wrapped you reckon?

    IMO it won't look right. Your car is silver and the black rails will bring too much attention to the roof line. The silver roof rails blend in with the paint. Paint your splitter black
