The arm attaching the mirror to the bodywork doesn't look quite right to me.

Bigger mirrors on the CC perhaps?

It may look better from a distance. A couple of hundred miles should do it.

Just out of interest how much was it to do yours, I am thinking of doing the exact same to mine as the wife XC40 looks great and my Saville Grey I think would also look great

Did you also go for the mirror caps and the front grille surround ?

My mirrors are already colour coded so didn't need doing, and I thought doing the front grill surround would ruin the look so left that.

Also, my initial thoughts were to have the Chrome doorstrip done as well but OH over rode that decision - she liked that it had "Inscription" on it, and to be honest (don't tell her) I actually agree now.


I paid 200 for the Chrome around the windows to be done in black - and definitely the right decision in my mind.

If you're any good with photo editing (use PAINT or editing on your mobile), take a picture and colour the chrome in (as near) the colour you want to get an idea of the finish.
I did that with the front which helped make my mind up to leave it chrome.

Just proves that there is no correlation between money and good taste! Would go down a storm in Dubai !
