I really wanted to remove mine but once I saw everybody is plasti-dipping everything or has to have the Ti headlamps I'm thinking of keeping all the chrome pieces chrome just to be different.

I'll actually agree with Ron, I like the chrome it works, I may be biased though all my headlight chrome is tinted ;)

I'm not a chrome guy, but on the silver I like the chrome over the black headlights. I still don't like the chrome fog bezels though. I think a color match would look nice.

I just don't like chrome at all. I guess on some cars and color combos it looks alright but on mine I'd black all of the chrome out.

On race red cars the silver or black looks good. No need to remove a bunch of stuff on those cars to change colors!

Here are pictures showing where to pry the clips. Don't force 1 side too much, you will hear a small click, move on to the next one. The worst part is having 3 clips clip back in once your trying to do the fourth one..






Hope it helps!

Screw driver on the paint scars me [scared]

Thanks for the heads up though, maybe a plastic pry tool would work just as well

If you do it properly the only place the screwdriver touches is the bezel.
