Chrome Or Black Window Trim

I'm having a hard time deciding whether or not I should get chrome. I have a steel grey sedan.
BTW, how much does chrome window trim cost?

LOL - No one is ever happy. I have a Steel Gray 330i and am thinking of switching to black. Persoanlly, for Steel Gray, I think the black window trim and black Hamann shadow grill look great.

I didn't think and I went ahead and bought the Hamann Shadow Grills, I have an orient blue 328 sedan and after installing the grills, I figured that it wouldn't go very well without the black window trim, now I need to get the window trim and I need to learn what is the p/n for these and also how much money it will cost me. Anyone knows?

Chrome trim looks good on a white or a silver car. Black trim looks better on dark colored cars.

Search the threads. There were a lot of posts for this last month. They had prices (around 500) and part numbers for left and right side pieces.

I hate the chrome - no matter what model you're talking about. JMO.

500 bucks for that? Holy crap, I am in trouble, cuz I got the Hamann Shadow Grills for like 75 from the store, and now I have to put 500 to match it. I have the cash, but I have other mods in mind that I think it will make my ride sicker than the black trim.
