Facelift Black Edition / BSP - gloss or matt finish?


Registered User
Just a quick question, are the window surrounds on the Black Edition matt finish or gloss?

Are they easy to keep mark-free?

Just trying to decide whether the BE is worth the extra :)

If it's the same sort of finish as the B-pillar trim (and I believe it may be), the BE trim will scratch if you look at it crossly... it just may not be as obvious because it's not as large as surface area.

I pulled the mirror, B, and C-pillar trim off and wrapped it in satin black vinyl on my car. There's truly no hope for keeping it swirl free. Three of my last four cars have had gloss pillar trim. The finish just doesn't hold up.

You only notice swirls on the B pillar trim tbh, never noticed any on the window trims or grill... I'm not that anal to notice.
