Are the Edition ones all black gloss, or are some black chrome?
i wouldn't say it's "chrome". It's just shiny and glossy, Jesel's picture accurately captures the look. But it looks great on SSII's glossy finish. IMO, the OEM chrome doesn't look bad on SSII either. I was even on the fence buying Edition grills b/c I thought OEM chrome looked pretty good...but then I found a great deal on this site from someone selling theirs.

I also haven't bought the side gills yet for the same reason, you can't even tell on a SSII car whether it's blacked out or not, and the OEM chrome looks pretty good.
