Chrome Wheel Well Trim

I see many 108's with wheel well chrome trim.

Was this a factory or dealer option or neither?

I think they are less common on W1108/109.

They are common on 107, 115/116 and 126. Some like them and other hate them as a hiding place for rust. In a dry climate they pose no problem.

I believe that they are aftermarket and not offered by Mercedes-Benz. Dealers may have installed them eapecially in areas where there was customer demand such as California.

Thank you.

I see them on many cars here in SCAL, but I think that they detract from the beauty of the car's lines. It's "bling" is very American looking.
