    Most E46's have black bumper trims all over the place, has anyone sprayed them if so do they come up well? Is it expensive? I'm looking at mine going to t.silver.

    If you do spray them Bonse, make sure you use plenty of plastic primer...preferably white so that the silver won't look pale.

    I won't be doing it Neal, i'll be asking the sprayer too. I'm looking at either having the full car sprayed black or just having my silver touched up, which ever i can afford really.

    yes mate i always do them the best way is to rough up the plastic then spray with plastic primer then usea good filler primer then paint and laquer you will get a good finish as long as you get a good colour match with the paint.
