Vehicles are designed to appeal and be marketable to a huge number of people. This means, they are never tailored to you. While you can always get a vehicle that fits your lifestyle, in some ways, it will fall short in telling the whole world the type of a person you really are. This is where customization comes into play.
In an attempt to make their vehicle an extension of their personality, vehicle owners customize their ride by modifying some of its components and outfitting it with various add-ons. One thing that usually completes the customization puzzle is the pillar trim. Such accessory brings a big difference in the vehicle's appearance by breathing new life into the pillar posts. If you want to outfit your ride with such, allow us to be of help to you by sharing with you our experience with the B&I pillar trim.
- Made from premium-grade 304 stainless steel
- Makes use of 3M acrylic foam adhesive
- With mirror-like finish for protection against weathering
- This add-on really does magic on how our car appears. It pretty much matches our chrome bumper, mirrors, and wheels. We feel great that our ride now is able to elicit second look from onlookers and passersby.
- We're thankful for its 3M "Peel-and-Stick" adhesive backing, which made this DIY project so much easier. In our case, putting the pillar post trim in place didn't take us more than half an hour.
- While it does improve the car's appearance, it may only look great on vehicles with chrome appointments and add-ons. Though we haven't tried it on our off-road ride, we think it won't blend well with the vehicle's rugged appearance.
- After sometime, the mirror-like finish will eventually lose its original luster and may necessitate polishing or other types of treatment just to restore its shine.
Our final thought
For those who want a new, classy look for their ride, this B&I pillar trim seems to be a great buy. It is even more worth the bucks of those who already have chrome appointments and accessories in their ride. For us, installation was such a walk in the park--it's as simple as cleaning the surface, aligning the trim, peeling off the tape's backing, and putting the trim in place. However, with its finish, this may not be a good pick for rugged rigs fitted with accessories that have matte finish.
