Anyone know where I can get my hands on the chrome window trim for the 3 series? I have the black, but the chromes looks a lot sharper!

Have you checked with your dealership?

From a Bimmerfest post; looks like it was from 2006, lol. Availability might have changed, but part numbers should still be the same (at least for pre-LCI E90 :P)

Have you ever tried removing and reinstalling the lower trim in an e90? It's next to impossible. Unless you know exactly what you are doing, youll either bend the trim and/or wont be able to reinstall it.

The upper trim is just clipped in, but the lower trim is a whole different story.

Well I guess it depends on the color of your car and it's setup...i got the Alpine White color and i think it looks better with the wheels i got since they are hypersilver.... just my opinion... But I can see the black looking nice on some other colors too..

Why not just trade. It will not cost you anything and you will get the look you want. I'm local and have the chrome trim to trade.
