i love it. and fuck that jfngaycustoms guy according to him it can only look good if he did it,but it looks really good, paint does last longer, but i had vinyl electrical tape on mine for about 8 months, and only took it off because i accidentally hit it with a buffer, so i just ripped it all off. I think vinyl is a great alternative to paint.

I would say that's really uncalled for IMO, it's only going to add to the fire. Justice was simply stating his opinion and his experience with trim. I couldn't find the part where he said "If I didn't do it then it looks like shit". We're all adults and enthusiasts here, there's no need for on-going battles, pissing contests and negativity. Back on topic, this mod looks really good and made a huge difference in those pics.

Looks good. I had vinyl for about 6 months then it started to peel on me. For $12.00 I purchased all the new clips for the trim, Spent $15.00 on paint, and spent the afternoon, removing, sanding, and painting my own trim. I installed it later that evening. It wasn't too much work, looks like factory shadowline trim and cost me less than $30.00 with about 3-4 hours of work.

Looks good man Smile

Definitely prefer paint for longevity but Vinyl is a nice alternate solution. It should hold up for a while barring weather. Plenty of people have had vinyl on their trim for over a year on e90 and it still looks good.

That really looks good. I sent you a PM with questions...

Wiluven: thanks man. If I can figure out how to remove the trim without ruining it, I think I'll definitely have to paint it. It looks like Schneller was pretty successful.

Whenever (if) you decide to remove the vinyl to paint, would it really ruin the trim? The trim will need to be sanded before it gets painted anyway.

Sorry. I didn't mean that I'm concerned that the removal of the vinyl will ruin the trim. I'm concerned that I'll bend, tweak or otherwise damage the actual trim by removing it from the body.

Ahhhh yea. That's why Justice ended up painting it while it remained on the car. It's hard as hell to remove the trim on the E92 without damaging it.

BMW wants something like $1500 dollars for shadow line trim for the coupe.
