Mein Auto: '95 740il
Where can I find e38 trim?

I want to black out all of the chrome trim (around windows, down the sides and around the bumpers, the kidney grille will be purchased).... I've contacted quite a few shops in my area and everyone seems reluctant to paint them or pull them off.
Now, I've seen an all black 740il(mine is the alpine white w/black trim) with no chrome whatsoever on it and want mine the same- will I have to order all new trim in total black from BMW? Is there an aftermarket solution that wont cost me an arm and a leg?
Any help or advice would be appreciated!
