330ci without door moldings

My car was crashed in area of door moldings. I'd like to remove moldings from my car. Does somebody have fotos of e46 without them?

The molding is held on with plastic clips that will pop out. However, you will then see the holes where the clips were.

There is adjustment holes for the window behind the molding so if your remove the strips (have the holes filled) you wouldn't have anyway to adjust the windows. Not sure if that matters just something that might interest you.

He understood you. If you take out your moldings and fill it in your door your going to have problems. There is an adjustment hole to adjust your window right underneath the plastic moldings on each side of your door. He's not talking about the chrome trim. Look at the picture you can see the bigger holes.
