man, what a dumb topic.... just kidding- my window moldings are chipped and faded too. I need new ones as well. I think you could get them from the dealership. BMW san diego doest chagre rape for their parts, but thats in my area. Anyway, I've looked around and I dont know where else you can get them from
I had sun damage on my molding around my drivers window, and bought it at the dealership. The top molding and the bottom rubber piece was around $100 for both not installed. I have a 2 door 325is so it may be different pricewise than your car. I would also recommend getting it installed by a professional. On my car they had to take the back side window completely out.

The rubber seals on your windows that keep water out.......duh!!!!! :P
On E46 and E39 they are chrome. Actually mine needed replacing when I bought my car. The dealer at BMW of Manhattan charged me 125$ for the cowl trim...under the windshield...and this included installation.

the window moldings are also known as "trim" as well.
