    Couple of questions for you folks,

    My 335i is an SE. I would have bought a Sport, but at the time of purchase the Sport had not been introduced on the convertible. As a result it has the chrome trim.

    Has anybody used the pre-cut vinyls available on ebay to cover the chrome effectively turning it into the high gloss shadowline ?

    Is there another way ?

    Cheers in advance.

    Hi Mark, do you have a link to the product you've been looking at?

    My concern would be that it peels off due to constant expanding and contracting caused by heaters and cooling down overnight.

    That's just my thoughts and a free "Bump" as I was searching through "Unanswered Threads" and noticed you'd not had a reply yet

    I'd take the chrome off and paint it with gloss enamel. Just my opinion. Cheers

    Yeah, that would seem the most durable, but there is a large chrome trim when the roof is lowered which would appear to be a right PITA to remove.
