Think I'm going to paint the the top and the edge all the way round body colour (silver) it's to in your face I think.

The grille looks great but not so sure about the blacked out lights.

As scooby said.... Grill looks far better.. not a fan of the lights.. each to their own....

Honestly, I preferred the before grille, the totally black grille looks odd against the tinted lights. I think the after grille in chrome would look better. Just my opinion though.

Yeah I'm not sold on it I have an idea I'm going to try I like the style of the oem grille I'm just not convinced on the all black, as for the chrome idea my car has no chrome on it so will look even worse, I'm going to paint around the edge the same colour as the car so it's still has that clean look but less in your face black, I'll try get it painted today and take another picture.

Same opinion as others really, grill looks good - the lights would look better standard.

All painted when I get 5 minutes I'll fit it and hopefully that will be the grille sorted, I don't think I've ever seen a 211 with a grill painted like this so should be a good touch.
