Anyone with real chrome texture?

This is as close as I was able to recreate from memory, I had better luck using the Plastic reflector and messing with Fresnel for the color to give it that slight bluish or greying tinge (whichever you're looking for) around the edges of curves.

The attached file JUST has the texture in it, so you'll need to import the texture into a document where you already have objects to try it out. One of the tricks when trying to get a chrome/mirror/reflective texture is to make sure its tested completely within the environment you're going to put it in, anything over reflection 50% looks bizarre unless you give it a ground/sky and other objects to reflect.

I know I ended up with a much better version before, i'll keep looking.
