I have decided to refresh my kidney grilles on my car as after over 100k miles there looking abit pitted and past their best.
Now I now a lot will say just replace for new chrome grilles but there is a few different choices that have caught my eye now.
Wondered what the collective opinion was this matter.
Of course it is my car and I can do as I please but interested to see what other think.
As my car has the carbon bonnet I was thinking the carbon look might be a nice nod to the makeup of the car, but the smoked chrome is a good half way house between a darker grille and bright chrome.
I've ruled out gloss or Matt black as I'm not keen on the all black look.

What colour is the car?

I think smoked chrome will suit most dark colours but then I do have a bit of a pet hate about fake carbon fibre...

There is a clue in my avatar Wink
There are real carbon grilles available, I don't like the fake stuff either.
