got to say i really like both... as you say the clear ones do take a few years off, but the original do show its year....

dont know whether to go the full detango yet all depends how much i can get the front done for ?

That Montreal Blue sure looks good in sunlight, but then I'm biased. Not a fan of the chrome rear stone guards though! :shake:

Thanks Bonzo,

I dont really know what to think of the stone guards myself, i cut them myself from chrome vinyl, and i have also cut a set out of carbon fibre vinyl, my wife doesnt like them either and says to change them for the carbon, i going to keep them on for a few weeks though, as they didnt cost me anything, and then maybe try the carbon....

anyone else care to comment on the stone gaurds likey or no likey ?

Mine are matt black! The chrome ones immediately catch your eye, and in my (humble) opinion break up the flowing lines of the car. Just as chrome or silver gills would do on any colour other than perhaps silver. I also think great big wheels spoil the look of the car in the same way :shock:...... But then, I am a BOF. :shrug

:cheers

i think its looking great and the paint/polish looks v good. personally I think if you want stone guards go carbon. I have some on mine but in all honesty I dont think they are needed

thanks for the kind comments... i going to run with them for a few weeks, i have already cut the carbon stone guards so its very easy to pull them off and replace...

i going to try some sill guards as well, its all really a work in progress, and i do like to personalise my cars / motorbikes... any more comments greatfully received....

I have an element of 'M-styling' on my car, If that's a good enough reason for the manufacturers to adorn a 320 with the M badge, then its certainly a good enough reason for me..
