I have the smaller sills that are body color and I like them; particularly since my car has the optional body colored front facia and splitters. I understand that not everyone likes them and I'd echo the suggestion to wrap them in black if making them less obtrusive is your goal. Taking them off completely looks like a gigantic PITA and you'd also lose the protection that they provide. I would take my car in to have those wrapped; wouldn't cost much.

2 cents,
Dave

Doing the wrap yourself is not an option for the average shade tree mechanic (or any mechanic for that matter). Take it to a wrap specialist. We have some on this forum that can do it themselves, but you can count them on one hand that has several fingers missing.
