    I'm going black centres with a white lip, which will leave my car totally black and white... well excluding the tail pipes on the exhaust

    I may go that route with black wheels at some point next year. Not completely sure yet but I'm toying with the idea of tinting the windows as well. If I go that route I'll defintely get the black grills. As it stands though I'm actually leaning more towards keeping them chrome....

    I was thinking of putting in some black mesh instead of the slats, only trouble is is the bonnet pull comes out through the slats so it may not work properly.

    You'll need to have a cut out in the mesh. It will look tidy so long as you put something similar to thin air hose around it (air hose with a slice going from top to bottom so that you can open it up and feed it around the cut out)

    you can get black tailpipe trim...or use high temperature paint
