What do you guys think about painting the black side, front, and rear molding to match the body paint on a e46 sedan? Is it too Honda-ish???

Depends on a lot of things

It depends on the color of your car and how extensive a job you do.

For example, IMO, the heat-extractor grill area in the hood looks much better body color as it is on a 330, although not a 325. Likewise, the trim pieces between the roof and doors and the little trim piece above the license plate.

Depending on the color of the car --- other parts may look better in body color. Err on the side of not going too far towards the dip-coated look.

I wouldn't do the bumper trim on a white car for example.

Good luck.
