I thought all the AWD models came with silver plates?


Mine is the FWD version and i have no silver plates or "on board computer function"



Not really bothered about the BC button, (dont want to spend all my time watching the mpg), but i would like to replace the plates with silver ones if available.



After washing the "mighty antara" today i noticed that these plates are fitted to the bumper, rather than part of it.



So, i need to start trawling to find some.



Ray - did you ask your suppling dealer about the plates?

Another option may be, remove the black ones spray or get them sprayed silver then refit. Or do they not have anything to remove?Edited by: HoneyMonster

Did you ever paint your skid plates, have they lasted, I asked a local small bodyshop, he said it couldn't be done as it would flake and peel off??

You sure can. Mine have been painted two years now. Just make sure you use a light sanding of the surface. Prime then top coat. No problems. :)

Hi I am looking at replacing my plain skids for front and rear silver. Are they easy to remove and refit. My dealer was not 100% sure. Don't want to damage new car or end up with a wobbly bumper. Cheers

I'm still contemplating painting plates, just unsure on colour? Any ideas where to get paint or a paint code? Cheers

Well they're off and waiting to be primed, just wondering did you laquer them or just top coat?

Hi was it much hassle to get the plates off? Did you have to dismantle the bumper or did each plate clip off? Good luck with the painting.what year is your Antara?
