This may seem a stupid question, however is there any major difference between chrome hoops and stainless steel hoops, in the sense does one or the other look more tacky, kindly advise???? :lol:

Many thanks

They should both look good, nice and shiny. Probably the chrome ones will be shinier than the stainless steel.

The main difference is that if the chrome-plated ones get badly scratched the metal underneath could begin to corrode. Good quality stainless steel shouldn't corrode even if scratched.

I have just bought my 1st gorgeous 206cc :lol2: and the chrome gear knob is scratched to pieces so does anyone know where I can get a new one as the ones on ebay are horrid and just want a simple plain chrome one like I have.

I also want chrome roll bars for the back and some nice interior mats?

Did you guys get the gear knob off in the end?

:love-thx:

The gear knobs are aluminium I think, not chrome plated.
I'd have a go at polishing the scratches out first using a mildly abrasive metal polish.
