The seals are glued in but they're easy to take off and replace too. I didn't even reglue mine. They just slid back in.

You could also vinyl the trim. I didn't have that peeling but I vinyled mine matte black. Just make sure you sand the paint flat otherwise the chipping will show through.
Did you by chance do this? I just got my 325i and the drivers side roof trim is chipped really bad. The passenger side looks fine. If it is easy to pull off I may just remove sand and paint it tomorrow. It is really bugging me. Thanks in advance for an help.
