Aaaaahhhh, right.

Go out to your car. Stand facing the rear passenger's door. Locate the Hofmeister Kink*. Notice the trim starting at the bottom of the kink? Follow it along from there, over the doors, to the B pillar and back down to the front of the driver's windowIts black, glossy and shadowy. Then, look at the face of the B pillar. Also nice and black. Hence the name "Shadowline" trim. As phillipek said, normally its chrome.

* Hofmeister Kink:
“Character is doing the right thing when nobody’s looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that’s right is to get by, and the only thing that’s wrong is to get caught.”
