Cobra R's

I'm going to order my Cobra R's tommorow, and I wanted to know whether i should get silver or polished. Right now the car is silver, but it is going to be painted this summer, most likely some sort of dark blue. If anybody has pictures of Cobra R's on a blue mn-12, that would be great. thanks for the help.

another vote for chrome, don't get polished, very high maintenance, i really don't care for silver, but hey man it's your car, but imho chome, it may cost more to begin with, but the ease of maintenance is well worth it in the long run, and be sure to post some pics after you get 'em....later'z....
