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.
