Trunk Lid Trim? Paint? Chrome? Leave Black?

I saw this on ebay for cheap



I may get it or paint the trim to match the car...
I'm also planning clear tails as my first exterior mod...
so I'm cleaning up my truck lid and bumper (M3 diffuser coming and chrome tailpipe trim).

What do ya'll think?

My car would prolly look like this here:

hmm, I don't care for chrome at all but because you've done your grill chrome I don't think it'd look that bad. but the trim there is larger on a 3-series than a 7, so maybe it looks like it's over-doing it in person.

Keep the body painted one, chrome one wouldn't be a 100% match and would therfor look like crap (and rattle if you have subs)

nope it's black, well on 94's it is. Maybe on 328's it's not? Someone at my school with a 325i has chrome grills, and got the middle piece of the stock bumper in chrome, the horizontal pieces below the license plate, and it looks like crap. With calypso I think chrome looks nice on there, just don't overdo the chrome.
