    Talking To Chrome or not to chrome

    I am considering fitting chrome covers on my wing mirrors and also chrome door handles.....my colour is Platinum Blue

    do you think this would look too tacky?.......there is a `M` reg Merc which parks just 2 doors away from me and is nearly the same colour and it has chrome door handles, i think it looks the bee's knees but what do you think?....ovetr the top?

    what colour is platinum blue? vx only list 2...

    royal blue


    or ultra blue


    IMO you could get away with it on the darker car better, but you'd need to 'bling' it up a bit with some big shiny alloys etc to balance the effect.

    Focus on the handles before mirrors.

    handles would look good, but mirrors too may look a bit "pimpish"

    No offence to anyone with chromed mirrors
