I need to know where i can get the chrome/stainless steel thing that goes around the side windows and doors, and how much. The picture should explain it better. Can it be easly installed?

THANKS!

the dealership is probably your best bet. i think your car would look better with just black trim not the crhome stuff.

Yup, the dealer will get the job done nicely. And the material will be of great quality, resisting well to corrosion.

Shadowline is when everything is blacked out.

If you have a 2002- current 3 series sedan, I will trade you my chrome trim. I have a 2003 330i and the only reason I'm interested in trading it is because I've done some exterior sport upgrades and after much debate, I've come to the conclution that I feel the black trim looks more sporty. You you or anyone else is interested in trading, please respond by calling: 1-205-240-3252 between the hours of 4p.m.-10p.m. on weekdays and anytime Sat.-Sun. Thanks, hope to hear from you soon!

P.S.- My name is Jimmy Musso.

I have the chrome too and I think it makes the car look much classier. It is a matter of opinion I guess. If my car was black, I'd probably want the black b/c it looks sportier but I think the black would look like shit on my red car.
