X1 chrome grills and window line custom?

Hi,

A dealer suggested that chrome grills and side windows bottom lines can be custom added after the car is delievered. Since I can't have it added by factory due to it being a mere 18d sDrive.

Now my worry are those side windows lines. It's more delicate work then swapping normal grills with a chrome one. So I'm worried they could mess it up.

Should I be worried? Has anyone done this? How delicate are those changes?

Thank you,

Yeah I presume chrome grill is easy to replace. Not much to screw up there.

But adding that side windows chrome line takes some more skills. So that's what worries me. Did you add that too?

I changed my Dark Grill by the Chrome ones, after buying the car.
I don't think that the line custom can be easely added.

Is there a website that sells proper BMW ones or do I have to go through my local dealership?
