Netiquette ( yes internet etiquette) says that when you type in all caps you are screaming, besides its as annoying as hell, makes you look like one of those punk 12year old l33t fags. ya you heard me, l33t sucks

<span style='font-size:11pt;line-height:100%'><span style='color:blue'> theres no replacement for displacement </span></span>

Ok, Caps Lock not withstanding, the answer to your question is this: Shadowline Trim refers to the moulding around the left and right side windows. The moulding is either silver-chrome or black rubber. Shadowline is the black rubber.

Actually not just the chrome around the windows - if you look at a standard 5er you will see chrome all over the place - now picture this chrome replaced with black, you're now looking at the shadowline trim. This is just a posh name for what used to be called a "dechrome" and was a free option on all the e39 models (except sport for obvious reasons). BMW think that a dechrome makes the car look sportier whereas chrome looks more elegant and luxurious.


PS It's pretty obvious he didn't mean to write most of the question in CAPS as the bit he meant to emphasise "shadow line", is in lower case - he just got it the wrong way round, he's not the first or last to do it..

To further clarify, it is the black molding surrounding the windows on the doors. The car in your sig had shadowline molding.
