I don't have a picture of it, but I think you know what I'm talking about. This is the thin chrome strip that W8 Passats have in their interior, covering the dash and door panels.

Are these strips simply attached with backside adhesive to the dash and door panels? If you did this mod, where did you get the part and how much was it?

I'm trying to add some subtle touches to spruce up my all-black interior.

People have done this, yes. Generally it's not with an OEM VW chrome strip, rather using chrome from a parts supply outlet and then molding it to fit.

So where would I get a roll of thin chrome with adhesive backing?

Joshua Tree did a GB for a bunch of us 2 yrs ago. I went with the synthetic aluminum trim. Was easier to install.
How do you like the look and fit of it?

I inquired about this a while ago. Ended up using some chrome outside trim molding. Came out very good. I got the molding from a local auto body store. it was $13bucks for 20 feet.
