Default High-Gloss Shadowline (exterior) Trim - Pictures

So I just recently learned that the E46 M3 had an option to add "High-Gloss Shadowline Trim" for the exterior, in certain countries outside of the USA. I realize this was a super rare item to have optioned (due to price), and given that it wasn't offered in the USA, even rarer. Does anyone have pictures of an E46 M3 in particular with this trim option?? Really interested to see how it looks on our cars. The internet isn't turning up much when I search, other than a few people mentioning this option existing outside of the USA.

Thank you in advance!

When my Individual was broken into the shop was able to replace mine after a thief left a very very small nick in it. I was able to keep it and get it replaced so I know there must be a part number to get it.



I noticed that the trim is one single piece of metal thatís been somehow electrically coated? At the back of the trim you can see in one place the true state of the metal:

Awesome! Yes, it available from BMW....but If I remember correctly for around $1200 (YIKES).

Just paid for a set from the UK that looked to be in mint condition. Unfortunately, it appears I was scammed (currently dealing with that with my bank)...but it really got me interested in finding a set for my car. I think it would go well with my color. It DEFINITELY goes well with Estoril, Rovert. A local friend has it on his E9x 3-series of a similar blue-shade and it looks incredible when the whole car is ceramic coated.


Looking forward to seeing more pictures! Thanks for the fast replies. =)

I paid about $800 for my standard ones few years ago. $1,200 sounds about right for those. I believe csl has the gloss trim.

A few more since it was taken by a DSLR rather than a phone. Trying to pick out the ones that show the gloss on the trim as I never thought about that when snapping pics...

It was available on the early 2001 cars for sure; my 01 has it. Iím assuming it stopped at the same time they switched the gloss black interior trim to brushed aluminum late in 01.
