interior sticky chrome....rice or not rice?

ok, i expect to get flamed on this one, but anyway, i have seen these on ebay , it is brushed aluminum "stickers" for the trim - entire center console and all vents, and dash are provided, but i am just interested in the trim for the oval vents. it is arguably easier just to paint them, but it would only be silver, not actually metal. so i thought i would ask if anyone had done this to their interior and if possible provide an evaluation on the appearance, (pics?)

I don't think it'd be that bad... probably a pita to install on the oval vent surrounds though.

I've seen those things on cars. I'm not to fond of them. A lot of times they don't fit right and the edges show through. I think, in my opinion, it looks better to paint them or replace them with actual chrome plastic pieces.
