FOR SALE: ** SHADOWLINE ** SEDAN OEM BLACK Window TRIM (PAINTED)

This is for a facelift sedan. I removed my OEM chrome window trim and sanded and painted the 6 pieces matte black (SHADOWLINE). I'm selling these 6 pieces for $250.

Buying the OEM shadowline pieces from BMW costs well over $600 with shipping. I'm asking for less than half that price. Remove your faded/cloudy chrome window trim with these.

All weatherstripping behind the two long top pieces are intact. This will really transform the look of your E46. If you have chrome window trim- this is a no brainer.

If you have chrome window trim- this is a much needed upgrade.

It's not hard to remove them. There are a few DIYs on this. You just have to be careful of breaking the clips- but you can easily buy replacements for a couple dollars at the dealer.

From what I can remember- NO special tools required.

I checked with my local BMW parts department. They said that you must use the existing clips that are on your car. In other words, when you remove your existing window trim- the clips will remain intact on your car. If you happen to break a couple of clips during removal, you can buy replacement clips for pennies on the dollar.

So the short answer to your question is: no- these pieces don't come with the clips.
