    I'm not sure if they qualify as black chrome, but regarding the metal trim around the door windows: (at least on the GT1's, but I'm assuming all models are the same) has anyone noticed discoloration on these? Almost like a clear coat is failing? I have some spots on mine, and when I was looking at [used] cars to buy I saw a silver GT1 that actually had the clear coat peeling off.

    Mine looks like that too after a few months.

    When I waxed the car I went over the mirrors with the wax to see if it helps, it seems to still get spotting but a detailers spray and it comes right out looking good so I think having some protection on that helps, but the detailers spray seems to work pretty good.

    Sooo, do you think it is an issue covered by warranty?

    I think its dependent on the dealer, some will probably replace under warranty.
