I replaced the inserts on my 08 X2 cause the black ones faded. I ended up destroying them getting them off but in the end the new ones were a better quality, better color and never faded at all, after 5 years. They looked great and although they were expensive, they were a great upgrade to the boat! After getting them I felt they were worth the cost.
1st boat in 1994 - PS205

Corbin painted his tower inserts while still on the boat.

Look good, way better than the faded black anodizing!

It's funny I commented on my concerns about MC going to dark anodized glove boxes and dash panels last yr and got bashed by the MC fan boys about fighting change, or being a Debbie Downer. But haven't we learned anything from the past about how poor a boat will look when your new style dark dash is all faded from the sun? Imagine having to repaint your beautiful billet interior on your 5 yr old boat. Rather have the bright silver anodizing back personally.
