Thanks Kim,

I'll bear that in mind regarding the Ali Express ones.

I'll give the local dealer a call, and see if they can come up with anything.
Suggestion:
Take off the existing ones (hairdryer and dental floss method). Spray them - one coat of etch primer, one or two coats of matt black. Then stick 'em back on with a rubberised contact adhesive.

Did think that, but would rather have the originals - just in case whatever reason might come up.

I'd also prefer gloss black to match the wheels, window trims, skirts and rear valance.

Can't believe it's nearly 2 years since I took ownership of V3.

Today, I finally got the the finish I've been wanting on this car.

What with working away for weeks at a time, it's been a bit of a pain to get things done.

Having to get the respray redone didn't help.

All behind me now - car is looking mint.

Marc the detailer - Polished and Waxed - says the finish is top notch. So if thats the IDA recognised detailer telling me its mint - then I'm a happy bunny!!!
