For my recently acquired 2018 250S in black, I'd like to change all of the exterior chrome trim and wheels and replace with black. I've seen options for replacing with Jaguar parts (expensive), painting wheels (doable), and either wrapping trim with 3M film (looks challenging but doable and inexpensive) or plastic dipping (doable but questionably long-lasting).

Anyone had experience with either of these techniques and opinions on which is best path to pursue?

Thanks,

I changed the front grille emblem from red to black and it's flawless. Looks factory. My E-Pace was ordered with black trim so the rest was done OEM. I bought black wheel center caps off ebay and haven't had a chance to remove the wheels and pop off the red caps. I have no idea if they even fit. I bought various carbon fiber interior parts off ebay (from China) and most parts don't fit or conform to the contour properly. Worthless.

As far as vinyl wrap goes, I wrapped a front skidplate on my F150 truck with carbon fiber wrap and it tore easily from road roost while driving. I imagine the same will happen if you wrap mirrors, etc. Vinyl wrap is mainly for show.
