chrome or painted mirrors?????

So I have chrome mirrors on my 07 f250. Truck is black and was debating on painting the mirrors and grill (pealing grill). Think it would look better but having a hard time visioning it. What do you all think or maybe have some pictures?

Here is a picture of mine; I plasti-dipped the mirror covers and grille. I did a carbon fiber type of pattern on it. Not sure if I like it. The picture in my sig has the chrome for comparison. Not sure I like it, might go back to chrome

I can tell you the 99-07 chrome tow mirrors are ugly. If you get a set of the 08+ tow mirrors with the chrome caps you'll like them MUCH better.
