Thank you. I actually liked my chromed side vents the best, but it was hard to find a guy being able or let's say willing to chrome the side vents...and they lasted only 2-3 years until heat and humidity destroyed the chrome under the coating.

The silver on the other hand was professionally done by a paintshop...OEM quality, will last years, so I am happy with them. Btw...I survived my stroke almost 4 years ago, too

Not sure, IF someone could powder coat plastic parts with shiny chrome...that would be awesome.
