Looks good.<br>I didn't paint mine and left the chrome. Its grown on me and sort of ties the headlights together. If I did paint mine, I think I would go for a silver similar to the original color just to tone down the chrome bling a bit<br>Yours ties it in nicely with the 04 black trim. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

If you're going to re-paint the stock trim, I would color match it to the car.
