I would personally say no.. but that's personal taste.. have you looked on cardomain.com or other sites to see if you can find any pics of treps with that mod? I KNOW there are a decent amount on there..

Doin mine in metallic black to match all my other sh*t.

I think the chrome pillars only look good on the M's where there is already a chrome window trim to match it.

I think it would look tacky, but that's me.

As said, only M's can get away with it, and even them I don't care for them.

It's all a matter of personal taste though.

I would match the color with the car. I like that look, even the wiper cowl.

I saw keep the black and roll with it, see if ebay has black headlights for ya, then black the tails. make it sleek and subtle, not ridiculously shiny and mismatched. Especially since you dont have chrome wheels.
