More Chrome up front

It seems most folks these days are anti chrome, blackout this, frozen that.
I like shiny things..
I am old school, I like chrome. The chrome in the grill differentiated the upgraded 135 from the 128. A little bit more sparkle.

Anyways, I came upon a cheap mod that I believe adds a slightly more aggressive look while keeping things all stock up front. Perfect for the lease returns.

I picked up a little chrome pin stripe tape and am happy with the result.

It picks up from the vertical lines in the grill but adds just enough to catch your eye. I think they kind of look like Bumper Blades:

The first thing I did when I got the car was rip off the chrome grills. Different strokes for different folks.

Agree with darkrom, I immediately removed all things chrome!
