Side molding chrome trim removal and tint

The chrome piece is easily removed without damage by simple wiggling. What is best for tinting to shadow chrome? Dupli-Color Shadow Chrome or Smoke Metalcast Anodized?

I went with M Performance Ornam. grille black high gloss side, M PERFORMANCE:
51712407179, left
51712407180, right

The M2 "wing" is gloss black and the backing is matte black. I just swapped the gloss M2 wing with the stock chrome wing. Didn't mess with the matte black backing at all (no dental floss / fishing line / Goo Gone etc).

Here is a picture of the M Performance side ornament, with the wing separated from the backing.

F87 M2 M Performance Ornam. grille black high gloss side, M PERFORMANCE
51712407179, left
51712407180, right

F87 M2 Competition molding left, - M - Black
51138077499, left
51138077500, right

They are both gloss black with matte black backing. Here is a picture of the side emblem on an M2 Competition. It appears to be the same as M Performance. Does anyone know the difference?
