I have the painted ones on my GTi and they look nice. The later 200s seemed to have coloured coded covers which fit over them.

My advice would be to give it a try as normal black ones shouldn't be too much trouble to pick up from the scrapyard if you decide you don't like it.

Got a pair off ebay for £30 which I think is ok.
