      After Market Chrome Trim Quality

      Hello,
      I'm considering ordering a Stainless Steel Front Bottom Bumper Lid Cover Strip Trim or similar item for my 2018 S90 Momentum. Currently the bumper has a couple of dings where I may have pulled in too close on those cement parking block barriers you often find in some parking lots. I figure that this accessory will cover those dings up and also dress up the bumper a little. Has anyone replaced or updated any of the chrome trim on the vehicle with a similar product to this and if so, how is the quality? I've seen other chrome parts as well like the door handle chrome, Front Fog Light Lamp Frame, etc. like on the Inscription. I'll appreciate any response but please only respond if you've actually used any of these products or have seen them first hand. I realize there are a number of posters here that will criticize anything made in China including the car itself. Thanks

      No experience with the product but if its going on the front end, I would recommend wrapping it with some clear bra material to help protect it from getting pits and chips.

      For $43 just get it. Also for $43 it`s not worth buying $20 worth of clear protection. Clear film over chrome or stainless always makes the it look dull, not to mention struggling for hours to get the film to lay right on a small piece with many compound curves .

      Thommykent, I ordered the part. I should receive it in a couple of weeks and I'll try to post a couple of photos once I install it.
