not all chrome...just the rings...it all depends on the colour tho, sometimes it looks nice...blacked out grills on a black bmw look right if you get dark rims

E30's and E34's have chrome around the windows.. actually, all bmw's have chrome around the windows EXCEPT the E36. Its an option to have it blacked out called Shadowline Trim. IMO it looks much cleaner.

U can get it from the dealer, but its pretty expensive, and a pretty large hassle.

**** that man, u can do it on ur own, take it out, sand it, paint it, then clear coat, no offence to no one, but people that go to the dealer for this kind of jobs are really stupid
