Due Dilgence

The "Chroming" process weakens the metal.

Try polishing your alloy wheels,they'll look fantastic! [Hard Labor]

The chrome "fender trims" are aftermarket items. Froogle or give site a look for examples.

You do know that these things cause dirt and moisture to become trapped underneath and can lead to rust? I'm having mine taken off when I get the 300D repainted in the 2006-2009 timeframe.
