9G Wheel arch trim?

I've got a 2013 EX 1.6D (BLACK) and the only thing I want to change is the god awful grey wheel arch trims, I notice they do the body colored ones on the TI edition, Can you buy these from Honda and I assume they will fit?

Or is it just best to paint them?

Any ideas?

Cheaper to paint I guess but it's gonna be difficult to match the exact colour despite coding. You may notice the difference if you're picky. Oh, and paint usually looks different on steel and on plastic. However, I think in case of black colour the difference shold not be so visible.

You can just have them sprayed at the dealership. We had ours done when we bought it.

Will Honda dealerships spray them as an after market job?

Are the colour coded ones sprayed originals?

Mine have a very slight mottled/orange peel effect but the sprayed ones look smooth.

You can ask but they would prob charge more to get it done if you found someone else to do it for you my local dealership quoted 200 for the job got them painted for half the price
