Question Anyone installed the Piano Black Glossy B Pillar Trim for the E46?

Trying to see if this is worth it. My only concern is longevity and it peeling off or fading to crap after a year in the sun.

That actually looks good! I am surprised, because I did not expect it too. I would put a sealant (Like Klasse or Blackfire) on it. That would help keep the scratches away.

OEM gloss black has been on my silver gray zhp since new with zero signs of fading or yellowing. Can't speak for anything else.

I would also be worried about scuffing and scratching over time. In direct sunlight, just like on black paint, it would show really bad.
