Side Grill Accent Trims - Preference? Silver or Black?

I'm debating whether to get silver or black accent trims for the camaro, if all else fails, leave it blank. I see some people have black and some chrome.

Do any of you have regrets after choosing a specific color? Or do you think a certain one looks better than the other?

Black Composite Style 1 Example:



Chrome Style 2 Example:

The faded ones look the best and are the only ones that add to the look of the gills being cut out. The solid black and chrome versions do not and look cheap IMO. I would get the faded or leave it blank. On the white camaro, the solid black sorta works a little because of the high contrast.

Faded black instead of chrome is my opinion.

SLP has the fades. Unfortunately they are something like $58 to some vinyl strips. As usual SLP has really nice stuff that is way overpriced.

A combo of the faded large flat pieces and the solid black along the edge, looks the best IMO. I did mine silver to match the rest of my silver accents.
