Yah, I want to get my bonnet gills done, but the mirrors in my view look better in white.

My car is Space Grey so think mirrors caps will look better in black to match rest of mirror!

Vinyl wrap your bonnet grills Neil, far cheaper than a paint shop, got mine done for 20 by Total Dynamics

Thats a bargain - wouldn't mind my mirror caps doing as I don't want to spray them because I will have to put them back to white when the car goes back off lease. All the other bits I have as spares to put back on, but don't seem to be able to come across any spare mirror covers!

You order the mirror covers in the colour that you want but they aren't cheap.

I think the black mirrors only work when you have the other part of the housing and attachemtn to the car in the colour of the car like the edition. otherwise its just too much black.

mmm, disagree on that one!

I love the edition but those black covers on the mirrors with body coloured frames really look daft IMO - the only part of the car that I don't like.

I might get a price on some gloss black covers but I won't do them unless I get a gloss black front lip/splitter - does yours have the high gloss shadowline Neil?
