I just got off the phone with my dealer because i was looking to see how much it would cost me to change the exterior trim surrounding my windows from black to chrome, and he quoted me $1300-$1500 and said that they would have to remove and replace my windows when installing! This cant be true for some lousy trim? Anyone know about this, it just seems outragous for six pieces of trim

That is rediculous, it is only chrome plated plastic, it is not even metal. You could probably replace it yourself in a couple of hours. Me? I have the chrome and wish it were black. The problem with the chrome is that you cannot polish it because it is plastic and once the weather gets to it it looks awful.

Save your money and stick with the black.
