Hey guys, I've had my 2019 Limited for a couple of weeks now, and I'm loving it! However, I don't like the chrome on the upper front grille, and the chrome trim below the side windows. Everywhere I've searched for the black upper grille covers, are sold out. I have no idea if anyone sells blacked out lower side window trim. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

That's a good idea! How has it held up?
I am also wondering how hard it is to replace the side chrome window trim with the black trim?

Zero issues. This month will be 2 years since I did it. If you go that route, just get quality vinyl.

As far as the trim, not sure how hard. I have a premium model and the trim is already black. So at least an OEM part will be avail if you swap it all out.

Sorry, I had shoulder surgery, and haven't been online a bunch. This is during the aforementioned road trip, hence the bugs.

Premium Auto Styling sells a "kit" for chrome delete. It's a roll of 3M gloss black film, 25' x 2". Great quality product. I used some on my Impreza and the rest on my wife's 2012 Tahoe LTZ.

Plastidip works for the window trim.

It does but it’s a lot more work. Even though dip peels off anywhere you don’t want it you should still mask off the areas you’re not intending to spray because the tint overspray is a bear to remove plus you run the risk of runs if you spray too close and if you don’t put on enough layers you could scratch it off. I used to run a business doing plastidip in my early 20s and now that I’m more experienced with wrap I say wrap over it all day.
