    Scion tc. Apparently they are shared among a few toyota models. 5 min job. Perfect fit. Imma try them for a few. Saved my black ones in case the darkening thing doesn't look that good

    Exactly on the blacked out stuff, I used to like chrome as well. That's why for wheels I went Bronze. :D

    That's what makes it look so nice. It's the contrast of the dark blue with the shiny chrome. Chrome is like bacon...makes everything better.

    Chrome is ok in moderation. But your trim rings on the doors are more brushed than chrome. A brushed finish may not be bad.

    I like the wheels.

    Trim rings on the doors? Not sure what you mean. They only shiny bits on the doors are the handles and they are indeed chrome. The only brushed parts are on the interior and they are factory brushed aluminum.

    Definitely not chrome. IMO chrome sucks. I have made it my mission to get rid of all the chrome on both my truck and my bike. Still working on it LOL. It's going to be a while.

    Way more then I can really afford...
    Well, I added some, and subtracted some, so...de-badged sides and tailgate, new body color grille, but polished grille guard and tube steps, and aluminum wheels...so it kind of balances out.
