I have recently purchased my first BMW from the local dealer. Its a 330i 4 door saloon. I have noticed that the elbow shaped chrome trim round the rear windows have numerous white marks on them. I tried to clean this off with every cleaning agent I could think off with no success. Its like this contamination is embedded in the chrome. In deperation I took the car back to the dealer and asked then to try to clean it off. They could not do it either? I complained this defect should have been spotted on their 120 point check but they are having none of it. Stating trim is not included in the warranty? So I asked them to quote me on replacing the parts. To my horror they quoted me over £300.
Does anyone know where I can get these parts cheap and whats involved in removal and fitting. I have looked on the web but cannot find the specific parts I require. Please help!
