Hey Everyone... I pulled up beside a new 330 today, and thought that my older yet modified 318, although much slower, looked almost as good!! haha MAYBE IM BIASED! BUT...... I noticed the chrome window moulding/trim, and thought that something like that would great on my black 318... Has anyone tried this/ looked into it/ etc.... I think that if I replaced my black stripping, with something like what the newer bimmers have, it would pretty hot! Thoughts?.......

I saw an e36 green in town that had this done. I tried chasing him down but he wouldn't stop lol and got freaked out and jetted. I didn't feel like chasing him down again. so yes you can get the chrome molding on your car. it looked real good on his car.
Even though I am generally against chrome, I personally like the way the chrome looks on the e46s. I have even thought about it on my 328, but I don't know that it belongs there. If you are going to do it, be aware that very likely it will have to be a costum job, as I haven't heard of fitted chrome trim being available as a standard product. Show us some pics if you get it done, though.
might look good so long as you don't do it cheap like the cheap chrome stripping kits you can buy in Pep Boys or AutoZone
