ZHP Trim Question

I have a question regarding trim on the ZHP equiped 330. I have given up on looking for a 2005, but have been searching for an 03-05 pre-owned. I have stumbled across a few ZHP's without any of the black exterior trim (side moldings, bumber trim, etc). Is this a custom job OR an option with some ZHP's. I have come across this on the Imola Red and Alpine White colors. Thanks in advance.

The 325 comes standard with matt black window/door trim, the 330 adds polished silver. The ZHP option adds ///M-style "shadowline" trim. It is high gloss black.

If the car in question does not have high gloss trim, either it was replaced (not real easy to do on the door pillars) or it's not what it is purported to be.

If you are talking about the black inserts in the bumpers, these are all black, regardless of model.

The bumper inserts in the two ZHP's I looked at were body colered.

Then someone painted them; they do not come this way.

Side molding and bumper trim are the same on the 330 with or without the ZHP option. The 330i is black and the 330ci is body color. If the bumper and side moldings of a 330i are body color then it is a custom job.
