    That sucks and like you probably couldn't live with it either. A few things come to mind first check into the cost of re-chroming probably will be more than the cost of replacement but you never know or possibly a chrome vinyl wrap?

    The chrome paints look horrible, but you could potentially rough it up and paint it a bumper black but would probably look quite out of place even if the paint was done well.

    Well there are chrome wrap outfits who could fill that area and then get the trim flat for a chrome wrap. may be cheaper than the new part but they have to get the front chrome matched to the rear on a prestige car which will stick out like a sore thump.

    And if you are near Aldershot/Woking/farnborough area I can put you in contact with a wrap specialist.

    That's a bummer. Is that a standard question from all other halfs?
    Had a look on eBay but this is all that came up you could give them a shout and see if they have the part you want.

    Thanks guys for all the suggestions
    will have to look into this a bit more - apparently the part just pulls off and is pushed back on
    Same part in Acura RL part is listed at $110 = £ 75
    Because it's so rare over here difficult to find the used part
