I'm assuming that you are talking about the chrome accents. I would reccomend looking into vinyl wrapping them as it will be the least time consuming option that you have. I will warn you that if you have the Brilliant White it is hard to find a perfect match when it comes to vinyl choices.
I've already compared all the 3M vinyl options and they didn't have anything that matched quite to my satisfaction, so I'm still on the hunt before I decide to just have them painted by a shop.

If you are talking about headlights that is a DIY project, which I myself will be doing in a week or so. If you have the cash do as someone suggested to you on another post and look in purchasing Fatchance2.0's which aren't cheap!

By the way, where are you located?

Good Luck Bro!

You could always buy a HID kit to put into your halogen housings which I've heard produce great results. Definately cheaper than buying factory HID headlamps.
What part of Califonia are you form?
Blk300limited and I are in the process of setting up a headlamp field Day really soon here to paint our headlamp bezels. Stay tuned as I plan on putting together a tutorial with pics to help others out who want to paint thier bezels to mimic the SRT or S trim 300.

I feel ya on the Chrome. Why I opted for the 300s, and would have liked the black chrome option even better, if I could have chosen it.

Which vinyl wrap brand did you use, and how close of a match is it (in person) to the factory paint?

Thanks.

Thanks.
Keep in mind that he has a SRT which has very little chrome. He was refering to his grille surround,rear trunk emblem and window trim that was wrapped in black vinyl.
