Good question... I haven't seen much on just paint... It is a good idea if it will hold... I think I'll pull a decent set from the PIY the next time I go and experiment... my 4.6is has painted VC's, but it is flaking really bad... I'm not sure what prep was done, if any to the covers...

I'll keep this post in mind when I get the covers and post the results... I'm sure someone will chime in with their results prior to my experiment tho...

EDIT::: I replaced mine when I did the 2001 540i rebuild, but just because the set I had was really "corroded"... The replacements just looked better, not that the others weren't working...

I could pull a set from the PIY and send to you... What are you driving? It's not a bad idea to include your vehicles in the signature block...
