    It's rare you ever get perfect conditions in Scotland. I make the most of what I can, though!

    Black puts more attention on the headlight arrangement I find,

    I like black ones on your car, but it dulls and darkens it out a bit, I am going to try black grills and matt silver slats myself, to sort of bring a bit of life back to them..

    If you go for black, I would say try gloss black like in your pic, as matt black will deffo dull it out, seeing as your colours sort of dark too..

    You considered colour coded grills, or chrome? I think chrome will look good on yours.

    Those were really sweet, but I'm not sure if it would only work on alpine white or not?
