    Hi All

    Is that easy to change chrome door panel strips to black on SE to give it a mtec look, I'm getting my windows tinted soon and silver is ruining the whole thing.

    If it is easy how much am I looking to spend?

    Thanks
    Salman

    if it's like the 3 series there's probably a shadowline or high gloss shadowline like on the m sport versions. Try realoem
