I've put on about 500 miles with them on and took a 4 hour drive in the rain back to school and they're still staying on pretty strongly.
If it survives several automatic car washes and below-freezing winter temps without peeling, then I'll definitely consider doing it. I would just hate to do it to discover than when it got to -5 degrees outside the stuff fell off, or when it baked in the summer at 100+ degrees it peeled off, or falls off the first time a car wash brush hits it. Not all adhesive tapes are created equal.
I though about just removing the stock black plastic grill inserts, sanding and prepping, and then painting them chrome. Or, more expensively, sending them in to be professionally chromed.
