r o b is right. It costs $800cdn. Exact same price as the chrome trim. I believe it is only available from the dealer.

The parts guy told me that the black trim is a chrome trim with a film glued on it. He said it was easily scratcheable. Not a good option.

I mentionned painting and he convinced me it wasn't a do it yourself job. Apparently you will break at least one piece of trim while taking it off. He told me to go see their bodyshop. I got an estimate of $200cdn for the whole job.

The good thing is that if they break a piece of trim, they have to replace it with a new one free of charge.

Not worth the hastle, have it done professionally.
