Oh the horror!!!!!

Sorry to dominate this board with stupid ???? but I'm a newbie owner so I've got a long list of projects.

Recently added to that list was a very unpleasent find. The right passenger side window trim is trashed. I didn't notice it when I got it a few months ago. I'm speaking of the metal trim that lines the window at the bottom. It looks like someone had the window down and scraped something across it, scarring both sides.

How hard is this to replace? I'll add a pic later if needed...

Thx!

looks like a break in.

The trim pieces are pretty easy- I will be sure of the parts and may even have some for you (at a SMOKIN deal I might ad) in the next few weeks.

The trim on my car is the less glossy of a sport packaged 2000 540i6. Does this match the kind you need?

I think so...

It looks like a flat finish to me...

Thanks,
Miles
