Black window trim

I honestly did try to search for this but couldn't find anything. I'm in the middle of attempting to de-chrome my 128i, but I can't find a good source for black window trim, or a good how-to video for replacing the chrome trim.

Can anyone point me in the right directions?

It's a pain to replace it, door cards have to come out rear windows have to get pulled. Just have a good company wrap the trim.

check this site out. I got 2 rolls of gloss black 3" as I had the same intentions of blacking out the chrome trim. Not the easiest task but be patient and go slow. Took me a bit but i'm happy with the result!

+1 for trim tape. It's easy as hell, you can get kits local for $10-15 at Vatozone.

I had mine done by a local vinyl shop in 3m gloss black vinyl. Looks great.

If you want to make it a little easier, you can get a sheet of 3M 1080 vinyl from amazon and cut to the shape of the trim, as doing the rear curve is a pain. There's a e90post somewhere about it.
