    Default De-chrome yes or no?

    Ok to clear things up I only mean the door handles and mirror covers. I am trying to make an i35 replica and most of the pics I have seen have colour coded handles and mirrors. Should I go back to them?

    not keen on the chrome mirrors as the joint line looks clearly that the chrome is an afterthought....and aftermarket

    Yes go to cc mate..........cos i'm after some chrome mirrors

    I think the chrome looks good against the red, but if you're going for a i35 replica then think you should remove them

    I'll be interested to see the result of this poll, as I'm considering getting rid of my chrome handles. Will be keeping the mirrors though.

    I think the handles look good, I've got some covers due any day now. Not so keen on the mirror covers, they look stuck on.

    Rich

    P.s. Are they real chrome handles or covers? If they are real and you decide to get rid, let me know

    Handles - chrome = good
    Mirrors not so much, as mentioned, the joint line makes it look out of place IMHO

    Just my £0.00002

    i think the handles look quite smart on your car, but not the mirrors
