    Apparently from a few years ago they're all painted because of cost and pedestrian safety.

    Ah, apologies I was thinking of the S3 and S4 caps then.

    It seems the S5 ones are, unfortunately, painted plastic with some kind of special chrome-sprinkled paint. More of a treatment than a paint... best off getting a shop to match it, or better yet to try and get a pair from an S5 breaker.
