Platings like that are typically really thin, so not alot. About all that
could be done to keep it from wearing off eventually is to clearcoat it with
something, and i'm not sure there is really anything that would stick well
to the plating. Maybe some of the clear powercoats.

As far as the HID conversion, it's allready been done, and is available.

I'll probably put one in my own D whenever I progress far enough to need

VIN #3209
