    I've got a facelift so the back already has a black insert but I've plasti dipped the strip under the license plate so it might give you an idea.

    Thanks! Got some pressed plates to finish it off as well, was really easy to do with the plasti dip but its more of a matt look

    Right, time to order the plastidip. Doing this without any doubt. Looks superb.

    Also use the dip to lightly tint the rear lights

    I've just done mine but I've left the bottom part. So if you want to compare here is a picture.

    I was going to do this to the missus' new one when we get it but it has front parking sensors, one either side of the plate so not so simple.......

    Hahaha! Every time for me! I finish and go "Yeah that looks good as! Where is my phone?!"... Then I grab a beer and sit down and admire... Only then can I clean up!
