I also painted mine (Silver MY00). I think it will make the car look a lot cleaner, and esp. after I get clear lamps up front. I used model enamel to paint mine. Mix Silver-Gloss and Steel-Flat together until you get the right color. Mine dried a little bit lighter, so be careful. You can't really tell the color difference unless you stoop down and really look at them. Also, consider using an airbrush... it paints MUCH better than spary cans will.
