The E92 is not nearly as difficult to replace the gills. Use the tape technique found in the DIY. I have pics in the cosmetic mods section.
Yes... the tape method was the easiest by far on the gills. The OEM Black Chrome matches the other side trim around the window seals perfectly. The car should have come with black chrome from the factory.
Isn't the side window trim more a gloss/piano finish? If so wouldn't the Gloss Gills match more than the black chrome? Just wondering because I m also debating between black chrome and gloss black on my IB E90. Anyone have comparison pics?
