Hi si-forks,

Not sure mate, I can see what you mean. I think I prefer the old one but these things can take time to adjust to.

I was going to change my front grills on my 4 from silver to black so I put a picture of both around the office and had a poll, Silver won hands down so I left it as it was.

makes the z3 look like it has a cold. The matte black looks miles better.

Out of the two photos, i prefer the first ones, and not a lover of chrome in any form, i think the originals would suit the blue better. I had those in the first photo but was not happy with them, they looked a bit bulky, but managed to track some down in black like the originals, neater and much thiner which look much better, but, if you like them, that is really all that matters :D
