Im purchasing a 325ci soon and I went to the dealer yesterday and one rep said that the chrome trim on the CI's come only with the premium package...but I have not seen a CI without one ever, with or without the premium package. Does anyone know if it comes standard...it has it shown on the BMW website also when I build my own car.

Another question I have is with the sports package...i see some books say that in the sports package power seats are included in the package. Im going to get power seats either way, just not sure if it is included in the sports package.

i dont think on all. i dont have the chrome trim on my 325. but on the 328 it has the chrome trim. it brings out the black alot on the 328 but not so much if were onthe blue 325...
as for the chrome trim. over time, the clear coat on the silver trim will start to peel off.. as for hte black plastic trim, over time as it fades, it can be detailed to have the look of the original black....
my 2cents.

I'm thinking only the 330's have the chrome trim. Just another way
to keep them a little different from the 325's.

I have the chrome trim on my 2000 323Ci. I think it was standard on all cars initially, but then they added more standard equipment to the higher end models & took stuff like the chrome trim away from the lower models.

first off,

only sedans have both black or chrome trim. higher models 328/330 gets chrome trim, 325/323 gets black

on COUPES: they all get chrome

japerkins47 is on a distinguished road
I believe the black trim was an option and was termed Shadowline.
