    Hi, my 2000 Touring is a dark (orient) blue metallic colour with chrome/silver sills around the windows......I think it looks a bit lame.
    What's the easiest way to make the car look a bit sharper?
    I was thinking about replacing or changing the colour of the sills to either black or the blue body colour.
    Any views on this?
    Any ideas on the best / easiest / cheapest way to achieve this?

    Thanks,
    Andy

    there are 'shadowline' kits you can buy on ebay
    dunno if they do them for touring models though.
    afaik its just a tape that covers the existing brightwork

    So do they just kind of dull the chrome or are they available in different colours? I'm wondering if a bad match would be worse than the original?

    Thanks,
    Andy
