Thank you.
"shadowline" trim (black w/o the chrome) from the Sport models."
Those are the keywords I am looking for. My body shop couldn't find what I was talking about on his BMW parts book.
I am sure it'll look exactly the same, they did my body kit and sport side mirror and it looks just like it was from the factory.


: I suppose you could go to the dealer and order the "shadowline" trim (black w/o the chrome) to replace the standard "chromeline". The shadowline comes standard only on the Sport models.

: Whether you can paint the strips and have it look "right" is another discussion.

: : Hello 5er folks,

: : I am planning on painting the side/front/rear black molding to same color as the color. However, my E39 is 1997 model, which the chrome strip on top of the black molding is all the way around. I've heard that the 98? model have the black moldings ONLY, without the chrome strip. Can those be purchase and does anyone have part #S or have anyone done it?

: : Happy Cruzing..
