I think it looks great as-is.

The chrome door-handles are part of the overall look. IMO.


I was never a fan of the white 159s when they came out, but they've grown on me.

Go for it, although you'd need a pro to do it and for small things it'll still cost the same as larger pieces as for the cost of making up the paint from experience its not cost effective to make small batches.

Put the wheels and mirrors back to how they were when they left the factory.
You'll then have a beauty :p

it wont stop there - you will need darker side repeaters and oh what about painting the headlight surrounds.....

Personally I wouldn't. Why not wrap them (won't cost much for such a small amount - and if you don't like them take it off).

I didn't think I'd like the mirrors but I do.

I did exactly that a few weeks back - it just looked weird with dark door handles and a bit cheap somehow - peeled it off next day - they are meant to be chromed, just suits the car.

Can't you coat them in grey Plastidip to see what they look like. Personally I think the whole look is a bit 'Richard Hammond' myself.. :hehe: ... but each to their own!
