Lol paint them mate. With you black housing, the eyebrows seem hardly noticeable. Dont take it the wrong way, the black housing and white car look great! But if you painted the eyebrows white, it would look great as it would contrast with the black housing and actually make a difference. Just my .02 cents

My review of Polish replica Eyebrows

1) I like that I can adjust their mounting. I experimented with the brows mounted in the LCI look ( eyelid lower than hood-line), but it did not look right with halogens. So I chose to match the hood line instead, the same look that most use in this thread.

2) The cost is perfect since they are mounted with tape and could possibly fly off or break when you take them off

3) Cost is also great since you save money for paint. I DIY'd my paint and clear coat and I must say that despite the matching being okay, I am happy the eyebrows were cheap.

Yes I did, looks great on my Jet Black! Mine look great BOTH pre and post painting. Each gave it a slightly different look. Painting em DID NOT blend them but instead made them look a tad cleaner(too many interrupted lines for a total blend). http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-1-e87-e8...item4abcda415f if you want the exact same ones I got
