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.
