    hope you can all give me some advise. I have had to replace the number plate lights on the boot lid and as you can only buy the entire handle i was not willing to pay £180 for a silver one from BMW. I have got one working from ebay for £20 but its black. So here is the question, do i leave it black or paint it silver what do you all think?

    finally decided what to do with the handle so i just painted it with halfords paint and it looks brilliant its a really good colour match. If i went to stealers it would cost £180, it cost me £20 for the handle and £17 for the paint what a saving!!
