OK, not that I'm into chrome (although, I will admit, that was my intent when I first started looking at modifications), I was browsing eBay a bit this morning for Elantra MD accessories and thought I'd compile a quick list of the lowest prices for anyone who's looking to deck out their Elantra with plenty of chrome:

Window and Mirror Trim

Lighting Trim

Body (doors, grille, etc.)

Interior Parts

OEM Wheels!
Chromed OEM 10-spoke Wheels
They're +38 offset. TireRack goes as low as +42 on 17" wheels. Using the Wheel/Tire comparer at rimsntires.com, the only possible problem would be sticking out an extra .8" and I'd have to check to see if that would be a problem.

Yeah, I started out thinking about chrome around the headlights (they just looked so naked) but I've since gone another direction (and soon I'm going to go in yet another and just smoke them). The chrome on the grille is nice and complements the top if you're going to leave that the way it is.

I like the chromed lower window molding. I notice a lot of the newer cars are doing this including the Ford Focus and Hyundai i30.

I've never seen the chrome fog light housings before. Looks good with the matching lower grill!
