United-Kingdom Chrome Exterior

Anyone got any suggestions on bits of chrome for the outside of my 14plate roadster - I've got the chrome interior and the outside is looking a little understated??

Have seen some after market chrome wing mirror covers for a steal on Flea-bay. Is there anything else that can be done for a reasonable price that won't ruin the overall look?

You must be unique and one of the very few people in the world that doesnt want to rub all the chrome out and paint it black, nice to see a bit of shine I think.
Of course if they all came black everyone would be putting chrome bits back on

I'm with you on loving the chrome especially on dark colours. Each to their own!
It depends how far you want to go and how much you want to spend.
Genuine mini chrome front grille and/ or surround look nice as do the jcw side scuttles. On the mirror covers try to get the genuine ones as the stick on aftermarket ones just don't sit right to me.
Once you get into aftermarket there's tons of stuff so it all depends where you're taking it.
Plenty of fab chrome alloys out there but that takes it out of pocket money prices especially once you up the rim size and need new tyres...
I think with chrome you have to know where to stop - I'm sure we've all seen Chrysler PT cruisers blinged to death. I didn't want my mini to end up looking like that!
