Body color trim?

So I hate all the flat black plastic exterior trim crap all over our cars, and am planning on doing something about it. I want some input on what you guys think. Here are the options I am considering:

1. Professional grade (or as close to as I can get in my garage, depending on price) gloss black on all window pillar covers, grilles, door handles, and side view mirror housings.


2. Same as #1, except have some of the items be painted body color (sterling grey). i.e. door handles and maybe front solid grille area.

How difficult is it to completely remove these items from our vehicle?

I did get the gloss black pillar covers off ebay and had them on for a while, but I dislike how cheap they look up close. (I'm a bit anal with my vehicle)
So then I tore them off and tried my hand at gloss black vinyl on said areas, but it doesn't have that glassy black look that I want.

Also, I vinyl'd the weather stripping at the bottom of the window so that it blended in. Would it be possible to paint these without negative side effects?

Sorry for all the random questions.

Thanks in advance,
