I don't think you're going to see much difference in this pic. I guess it really has to be seen in person, which I'm sure you'll see soon enough. I'm on the same level of chrome hate as you, but I absolutely love the way this looks in the car. As you can see I've removed the boot from the nut and tucked the edge back inside as if it were in the stock retaining clip. I like this look better than with the boot going to the knob.
