Where's the poll? I was expecting a poll that I could click on to vote and call it a day.

Hey, you know I dig the polished tips on the M Performance. If it came brushed I still wouldn't kick it outa bed. I vote polished for all colors, they really stand out.

No doubt the polished looks good! I have an option for polished or brushed and polished will delay my order :-( so that is why I am asking. Is it worth the wait? So far, I don't think so.

Black looks awesome but not for me.
When I replaced my grills to black, it lost something along the elegance aspect, however it made up for it in aggressiveness. Funny thing, to me the canisters on the M Perf if polished would adds to the machinery. I like a little machinery here and there. Never heard me complain.
