Need Help with Decision

I have to have rear bumper fascia replaced by dealership due to flaw in paint. Do I buy the exact red reflective vinyl decal inserts for rear fascia? Or should I buy the stainless steel inserts instead. Below is a video showing my inserts now and a website which shows the stainless steel inserts. I'm making it a pole question. Please help!

Stainless Steel:

05-08 Pontiac GTO Stainless Steel Inserts [SS-GTO-I] - $74.95 : SS Inserts, Mustang Accessories Corvette and Stainless Steel Inserts

Reflective Vinyl:

I can see why you made a poll, both look realy nice. You had the red before, I`d do the SS now.

No Brainer... SS is the correct choice. Why pick plastic over stainless steel?

Yours looks nice, you'll have to tell me where you got them from. I did search and only found one company so far. Thanks.

They are both very nice but I like the Red. It ties in your GTO and stands out without being gaudy.
Your other option is to leave it as is-quiet understatment is nice. Our Torrid Red speaks loudly as is.

i Have the stainless inserts, i think think there great gives it a classy look, not to flashy,
