Picking up White X3 this Saturday.
I powder coated the rims. It's much more durable and weather resistant then simply just painting them. As for the grill, I'm not sure you can have it powder coated considering most of it is made of plastic. I removed the grill, sanded the shiny away and used a spray primer and then a spray gloss black paint. I spent about $8 at Walmart for the supplies and it looks perfect. As for your roof rails I don't have any recommendations considering I don't have them.
