Possibly the solution is the Black high Gloss. BMW do this on their cars. Agree with Mikey, that the dull and greying black rubber does detract from the car. On the other hand I am not a fan of the Chrome either, always reminds me of old peoples cars!...just my opinion of course!..but it seems all the jags and posh fords get blinged up with added chrome.
Nope I would go with the BMW high gloss solution, it stays looking smart ( I had a bmer for 3 yrs with it & it looked as good as new when I sold it )
Cannot believe in most of the car industry it seems your only choice is aged tat rubber or chrome. Not a very good pic..but hopefully gives you the idea
