    First time I've heard anyone wanting to dechrome - if you can get the trims off in good condition I'm sure several people would want to buy them off you!

    Taking the chrome off?...NO! In my opinion the chrome finish sets the car off but as we always say, to each his own eh?

    never seen a Siggy without them mate, so I don't know where you'd get ones without chrome, or who you'd sell them too, as the doors are different from the Vectra...

    The door looks a different shape, but the chrome could be the same length... No idea in all honesty...

    Stick some black plastic electricians tape over them and get back a bit and see how it looks
