Chrome trim

Can you get chrome trim from a dealer and how much? I'm talking about the trim that goes around the windows instead of the black rubber

I don't think the X3 ever came with a full surround chrome trim around the windows and D-pillar. It was standard on non-sport models from 2006 only on the lower edge of the window sill.

If you really wanted it, on paper at least, you could get it from a 2006.

Technically, yes, RealOEM part numbers are available for ordering anywhere...but if it's a special order part and it doesn't fit, you probably won't be able to return it. Also, the parts in your model year may have only been available in Europe, so the parts counter at your local dealer will probably tell you in that case that the parts you want won't fit on your car. But RealOEM is usually spot-on for things that fit and things that don't. If you see it there by entering your VIN, then you're almost always OK.

If you can confirm that the parts will definitely fit your car, an online seller (like a sponsor here or someplace like OEM BImmer Parts, Bav Auto, or an online BMW dealer) will probably have better prices than the local dealer...at least that's how it is here in expensive NorCal.

Installation may be complicated, so I would ask around for help on that before ordering anything. I've replaced trim on other BMWs (an E38) and what looked easy required a ton of adjustment, removal of seemingly unrelated parts, and clips to keep stuff attached. In other words, when RealOEM shows you clips, rivets, and screws, order a bunch of those in case you break the ones on your car removing your existing trim.
