I think the chrome looks great, especially on a black car.

Chrome is for Cadillacs.

Black on black is the only way to go.

As some people have said, I think it looks great in dark colors, especially black. Just simply not worth the hassle.

Alex, thanks for proving my point.

Add an "Escalade" badge and you'll be all set.

Keep the chrome. The darker colors, at least to my eye, look much better with it.

I just checked into purchasing chrome to replace the black trim on my new 325xi. Total parts cost (doors and windows): $329.04. I'm told that this is a quick DIY operation too.
