    Got an itch. Please post some pics if you got any? Are ther any cons (other than the extra $) to having one hard chromed? I haven't made up my mind about getting it hard chromed or not? They sure look good!!

    I asked a similar question last week. It is very tempting.

    There are no warranty issues with refinishing is there?

    You can get it hard chromed from the factory which is probably the best option. STI has really good CS, so it's likely you'd have no issue if you had it hard chromed after the fact.

    I'll add that whoever does the chroming for STI does a nice job.

    I'm very happy with mine. :)
