Here you go. Just hope it doesn't get damaged since you cant just buy that piece

Ok thanks. Id prefer to wrap but really wanted color match. Cant find anything remotely close to space gray wrap however, painting looks to be only option.

This company offers OEM paint code vinyl wrap. No experience with them.

https://www.colorxlabs.com/products/...em-paint-color

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Color-Match...-/292184465164

2' x 2' roll $149. Not worth it unless you can use it to also cover front or rear bumper reflectors

Just saw that. A 2x2 roll should get me handle trim, fender vents, and rear reflectors. Fronts were done before i purchased.

Is that more economic than just having all of this painted?

A body shop here in CA would charge more than $149 to paint all those pieces. I recommend calling around.

Thanks. I fell in love with it the moment I laid eyes on it. I did some research and learned it's actually a Porsche colour that BMW "borrowed"

Bringing this back to life. Ordered the color match vinyl and going to cover the chrome door handles, side vents, and rear red reflectors. A 2x2 sheet costs 140 (added protected finish). Figured I would be the guinea pig but at first glance, the match is perfect...

It is - but I need to hold onto that just in case!

Chrome Fender Trim - 640

I am not sure why BMW decided a blob of chrome looks good stuck on the fender but, what I really need help on is how do I remove it and what non chrome (black, carbon or body color) ideas do you have to replace it?

It is a 2018 640i C (F12)

Does anyone know if the M6 fender/turn signal trim from an F12 series will slide in?

This piece and the door handle are the last chrome holdouts!

Havenít been on this forum for long, thank you for the great advice in other posts
