    The chrome grill rings on the car have some pretty bad acid stains on them so I need to do something with them.

    Problem is I can't make my mind up if I should re paint the existing ones black or wrap in carbon or buy some new chrome ones

    I have done a very crude mock up just to see what it would look like in black. Lads at work are split at the moment 60 > 40 to keep it chrome.

    The grill is the only chrome on the car at the moment.

    Your opinions would be appreciated.

    Sorry, wanted to make the pics bigger but they keep coming up as thumbnails!

    It really is down to what 'you' prefer.
    Either match the car, personally I prefer the chrome as they tie in with the wheels. A seven series deserves a bit of shine! Nice motor by the way

    Black or carbon grille don't look right on a seven. I would stick with chrome.
    IMO 7 series aren't really a 'sporty' car.

    Yep, think black is wrong for the car.

    Everybody I have shown it to says keep it chrome.

    Does anybody know where I can get new chrome rings at a reasonable price?

    Cheers,

    Ste
