    how bad is the colour match?
    it might just because your original silver has started to fade a tiny bit?

    and are the handles the original plastic ones? how did you get them off if so?

    Im in the middle of it, got SXI handles but they are lighter than mine so i resprayed them with Star silver 2, make sure you're using right star silver tone.

    I'll post some pix of mine tonight.
