Post Exterior Trim

Hi, I have a 2002 325xi. I was wondering if you can replace the black plastic trim on the doors and the bumpers to match the car's paint. I've looked on a few of the sponsor sites and can't find it. I know you can do this for the coupes, but can you for sedans? Can anyone help?

Most people on here get m3 style vinyl that is close to the cars color code. A lot of people on here have done it, am sure someone will post a link.

You can wrap it in vinyl or you can have it painted.

I painted color match my sedan. Bought the paints from automotive touchup... You can't tell the difference and it blends well.

I doubt your going to find a match forOB. The only matches that have worked are silver, black, white, and possibly red.

check beacongraphics.com in the 3m vinyl
