    Default Window trim possible change

    Hello again guys I have a signum in black full irmscher body kit an wheels the more I look at the car the more I feel the Chrome window trim looks out of place as there is no other Chrome on the car and every thing like side repeaters windows lights are tinted black my question is firstly*

    Can the window trim along the bottom of the windows be changed to black if so do you know the part numbers please*

    Secondly*
    Dose the Chrome come standard on the signum or is it an extra etc*

    And lastly what is your opinion on changing from chrome to black etc*

    Thanks Martin*

    I'm not a fan of chrome mate, so I'd get rid of em if I was you, especially on an all black car. Fortunately my car doesn't have the chrome window strips, if it did I would of changed them to black.

    I'm sure you could swap your chrome ones for black mate, for some strange reason alot of peeps prefer chrome, so somebody might be willing to do a swap with you. When you asked if my spots were original, if you're referring to the headlights then yes they are the original sri ones. Unfortunately alot of the chrome lovers prefer the black headlights so I doubt you'd get anyone to swap those. By the way I had a Sierra with chrome around the doors so I just covered them in black insulating tape, looked fine, as Dez says you could cover then in vinyl easily. Fog lights are original aswell.
