Eh, those small pieces don't look bad. Like most things, chrome is good in moderation. Not everywhere. And not on wheels. Please don't put chrome on wheels.

I didn't mind the chrome so much because, as you said, it was subtle. It wasn't flashy or trashy. I just thought I'd try something different. I get antsy when I don't have anything to do on my car. If I don't want it anymore, I'll just peel it off.

Also, bonus at work so new swaybar endlinks on the way and possibly a front lip.

I guess I shouldn't say "hate". A little chrome is okay. The worst is when someone puts aftermarket chrome all over their car.

But I must say the black looks really good there.

Wasn't me. Came out and found it like that the other day.

I'm looking into having it removed right now as the rest of the body is 99% flawless.

That happened Saturday/Sunday overnight, although we've had some more snow everyday since then.

More than a foot. Some parts of my city got 60+ cm, so ~2 feet.

Youre lucky all you got was a deluge. We got mini flash floods.
