GLC 2018 Trim color change

Hi All
I am looking to powder coat the wheels of a GLC I am looking to purchase. The dealer said they cannot paint/powder coat the EXTERIOR chrome trim to black. Does anyone has any experience with changing the trim color ? This is a CPO with 10k miles on it.
Thank you

Yeah, the dealer is probably going to be no help with this. Go to an aftermarket place that does rims, wraps, etc., or look at OE MB parts. I plan on doing either wrap or just buy the night package parts and installing myself for the chrome pieces I want blacked out (mainly lower front area and exhaust tips). I tried to change my order for the night package when I ordered my vehicle, but I was too late.

The wheels are easy - frankly "powder coat" or "dipped" isn't necessary - our local outfit here does professional spray for like $80 a wheel... the window trim can be "wrapped" in "shiny black" or "matte black" using 3M material
