    chrome gets my vote too.

    I changed mine to black couple months ago. Really didnt look right, so change them back to chrome following day.

    I think black grilles can look good, but just depends on the model, variant and paintwork.

    I think they'd look good with darker wheels but it's a bit of an arse ache just to make the grills look better.

    Thanks for the input guys. It seems most are in favour of chrome, and i cant say i'm surprised.

    Exactly my thinking. I might keep them on for a week and see if they grow on me a bit more.

    How do i add a poll?

    I don't think the black grilles go well with topaz blue. I considered getting them for my silver coupe wheni had it but when i see one in the flesh thought it looked tacky. In the end i got some on shadow chrome fininsh which looked alot better. As said before i would stick with the chrome ones
