to anwser method4 many questions. when you open them up you can remove the chrome biece and you paint that, and just remove the amber color film. when your done you put it back in the oven to get the sticky again and pu them back together, or if need be reseal them with silicon.

I asume it does, but when you black out your head lights does it make them not as bright?

its not going to dull the headlights, its going to dull the turn signals, unless you mask off the area of the turn signals...
the headlight area is completely untouched...

thanks for the compliment
yup, 17" RS7's, I don't have a picture with my lugnuts covered, but they look even better with the covers on.
enkei = THE BEST wheel ever...take potholes like a champ. I babied them for about a week, after that, nothing but abuse..daily. They are bullet proof. Never curbed them *crosses fingers* But other than my short shifter and my navigation, best investment ive made to my car.
after you black out your lights, get HID's you will thank youself daily.

yeah, the covers make it look clean as hell, but it took off some of the black finish when i tried to put it on, i was like . but then i realized thats why enkei made the caps and cover plates to go the rims. i'm still waiting on my caps to come in though. but i love the enkeis so far!!! can't wait till i'm done with a few more things so i can post some pics of my car on here.
