Need opinions....take a look

Can't decide on what to do w/ my window trim. What do you think?? And before you suggest it, i'm not changing the wheels.






kidney grills are body matched w/ black verticals

i think your car looks fine the way it is. The finish on the window trim and your wheels look good together and gives it that classy look. Now if you do want something a little more "sportier" then black it out but personally i think it looks perfect the way it is now.

I can see how you're conflicted here because I think it looks great as is, but it would also give the car a much more aggressive look with the blacked out window trim where the roofline wouldn't look so tall.

Although your window trim matches your wheels, I think that you can pull off the black as well since it will match your kidney slats and black mesh.

I can't even vote, I can't decide.

I'd leave it the way it is because like everybody else has said, it does match your wheels and offsets your car nicely. I think the black window trim would make your car look darker, but I wouldn't say better or sportier.

Sniz not that this is the greatest picture but I had a topaz Blue E46 and ordered up the shadowline trim then decided I wanted it body colored. Not the same color as your but you get the general idea from this pic as I noticed it as an option in your poll!! If you like it I might be able to dig up a better pic for you to see it more clearly!!

Why would anyone suggest to change the wheels?

It looks bad ass as it is, i too suggest leaving the chrome in place.

I'd say leave the trim...it compliments your rims.

As is, the car looks classy and fresh. As everyone else said, it compliments your wheels.
But I think with the blacked out/shadowline trim, the car will have that certain uniqueness that is subtle, yet sporty.
I'd do the black vinyl.
Worst case, you peel it off.
I'm planning on doing it to my car.
Hope this helps.

personally I wouldn't get it painted to match the paint. I always thought without a border in black or chrome it looks incomplete...just my 2 cents

maybe you could get someone to PS it for you?
