    Because it's a different plastic and doesn't take paint to well due to the amount of flex in it - same have tried and it looks great for a short while but invariably it cracks and flakes

    Just like my SRi Turbo!!!

    I personally prefer the bit of black to break up the side of the car a bit, but it's all down to personal preference!

    How much would you expect to pay, to get the normal skirts/sidestrip/handles colour coded?

    just do em yourself with the old rattle cans. I'm doin mine this weekend. Certain ppl will try and tell ya the finish will be crap but its all down to preparation - 240/600/800/1200/1600 Wet'n'Dry, Primer Filler, Grey Primer, Top Coat & Clear Lacquer is all u need. I plan to take most of the time prep'ing so I can get a near perfect finish.

    Theres a "How To" in the Tech Section showing how to do this, listed under Interior & Painting Plastic Trim.

    Good luck whatever u decide and remember to post up some piccies when sorted!
