Default Question about E & G grills

Of those that have the E & G grill what do most people have the chrome or the billet aluminum version? I guess what my question really is is it worth the extra $160.00 for the chrome version? [:I]

After recently considering both of these E&G grilles, I decided to get the polished aluminum horizontal billet grille because I liked the looks better as you can't see the vertical grille frame supports on this one (they are "blacked out"). On the chromed grille, the vertical bars stand out, and, at least to my eyes, detract from the overall grille appearance. It is also considerably less money. The grille has a perfect custom fit and is made of high-quality materials--I LIKE IT! [8D]

I have the billet for about 2 1/2 years now, and am very happy. Mine's silver, so I wasn't sure how chrome would look. It's maintenance free, except for scrubbing bugs off. [?]
