    Got to say that my front ones broke too many clips taking it off. I didn't want to paint over the chrome also in case it got chipped by a rogue stone.

    On the negative side my new front rings are a fraction smaller than the originals, you'd never know to look at it though but i know....

    I fitted a black set on mine yesterday then ended up putting chrome back on. Didnt suite the car Think it would suite a black or darker car better.

    I bought the ones from US. Just tried fitting them & in the process broke two clips on the chrome one. Went to fit the black one and it wouldn't fit! Kept popping out and was smaller! So tried taking it off and it broke!! Am gonna take my chrome one to a bodyshop and get it sprayed Matt black properly I think. Then hope it still fits with two broken clips :(
