    Chrome window trim??

    Evening

    I am trying to find out if the chrome trim that runs around the windows on the B7 can be removed?? I was hoping it could be removed in order to colour code it??

    Any ideas.

    They can be removed but require the rear quarter glass being removed by a auto glazer as there are rivets holding the trim in place behind it. A pain to remove in tact or without bending slightly.

    As for colour coding make sure you take off the anodised coating before applying an aluminium etch primer or the paint wont stick for long.
    You could of course have them anodised black once removed or black ones are available from Audi at roughly, from memory around the 150+ mark per side, for the Avant anyway

    Hope this helps as i looked into it. Another option which i was about to have done was having them wrapped in vinyl by a sign writers
    If it's got t*ts or wheels, it's TROUBLE!

    im about to take some off a B7 but they are for my B6, Do you need the windows down in order to get at the bolts holding them on?
