Retrofit of black gloss window surrounds

Post by adam b » Tue May 14, 2019 4:23 pm

Anyone know if this is possible and if so rough cost?

I am in the market for a grey or black S/GTS/turbo and have a strong preference for cars with the black window surrounds rather than chrome

Seen a nice turbo but with the chrome, so wondering what cost I am looking at to swap the trim over - has anyone enquired?

I am sitting down and am aware of Porsche parts prices ;)

I recall someone on here had them wrapped; much cheaper.....

+1. Can’t quite recall who. I think they had their calipers painted too, in yellow/gold. :geek:

For sure a wrap would be the way to go and relatively cheap. Does look a load better in black than chrome.

The rear quarterlights (and i think the front quarterlights are complete units with the trim so you cannot just swap the trim. The rear quarter lights are in the region of £500 each before fitting so it's likely to be very expensive vs wrapping.
