Plastidip or vinyl are what most people seem to do to take care of the chrome trim.
EDIT: Looks like the thread about nightshading your headlights didn't get added to that list...here is the link:

$150-250 is generally the going rate fro a good job and make sure you get a lifetime warranty with the work from a reputable shop.
Not a big fan of chrome either so I plasti-dipped my foglight bezels and then applied a semi-gloss clearcoat over them so it doesn't look like the Dip and offers a little more protection and it can be removed still. Next up will be covering the chrome whiskers and eventually would like to buy a set of the black headlamps but not a priority unless I can find them for a deal.

Hey everyone I'm new to this. I have a 2012 SEL Sedan that's ruby red. I live in wisconsin, so our tint laws are horrible. 50% in front, 35% sides and back. Not 100% sure on the back. Either way I want to do 35% all around. There's a lot of crappy places around here that are quoting me anywhere from $80-150. What should be the going rate to get my car done?
Also, I absolutely hate the chrome that's on the car. I hear everyone says, "You paid for that look so why not keep it." I want to make the chrome black and I'm not sure what I should do to accomplish this. I was told that I could plasti dip it. I'm leaning towards doing that so it's not a permanent option. Are there other ways I could do this?
Does anyone know if you can black out the headlights? Again the chrome is ugly as hell in my opinion. I've heard of take a heat gun to them and then nightshading them or something like that. How hard is it to take the chrome piece around the fog lights off?
Long story short, I don't know how long I'll have this car. I'm a full-time college student, so I don't have bags of money to get a ST right now. Any help would be appreciated.
