I think the black moldings compliment a white car quite nicely. Doing them white might make the car look odd.

It's pretty easy to DIY. You can get matching spray paint from Cawthra Automotive. It probably cost me $50 in materials.

Go to tuningemotion.com... Lot's of E46 guys there to offer you advice.

This car looks good with them white cuz it is customized and the moldings suit the way the car is customized. If you leave your car stock leave the moldings black otherwise it will probably look odd.

Edit: Actually.... the car looks good in the front cuz it has a good proportion of black to it, but the sides are too white.

I say leave moldings black. Its true what Mitch555 said. That pic u posted, it looks good cause theres lots of black at teh front, but if u were to cover that and juslt look at the side, it looks too white.
Lave em black.

get some ACS Type IV's to, if you can afford the stupid amounts of money they go for, however i don't think i've ever seen anything riding around on Type IV's yet.

Leave it black. As said, there would be too much white on the sides/rear.

I love those ACS wheels though, very rare!

If you decide to do it but don't wanna do it yourself, there's a place in Oakville I can recommend to you. My buddy got his E46 mouldings done there and it was beautiful.
