    To each his own, but I don't think they would look right on a beige car. I have some of the discontinued ECS ones on my silver e38.

    The gloss ones were discontinued or the matte ones were?

    I have the matte black ones on my Black 750.

    I would have liked gloss as I plan to eliminate the chrome trip over time and have it replaced with gloss black.

    I polished the matte black ones with compound and a DA polisher to a gloss finish. I actually do not like how they look so will swap out to the chrome ones soon.
    Just keeping it reliable and looking decent.
