Chrome fender accent

Has anyone heard of an aftermarket alternative to the chrome stick-on accent? I like the chrome trim, but if there is a better alternative out there I would rather spend my $77 elsewhere.

Do we know how (or if) that whole plastic assembly comes out? Would a swap to a FR-S design be an easy project or would it requre taking the entire fender off?

You could use black electrical tape to get that "matte black" look that everyone seems to enjoy!

a better alternative to the electrical tape would be plastidip. spray it on and if you dont like it it peels off with out harming your paint.

Any options for just completely removing those yet? The fender accents are almost as bad as the chrysler portholes. It's the main thing on the car that gives me a WTF.
