you could take them off and prime (to promote adhesion)and spray them with a gloss or flat krylon paint? are they chromed plastic or metal? my e30 ones are plastic.

no need prime them, just take out clean it well with wax remover or if dawn soap, then scuff it with scotch pad then just spray with black flat paint.
