Window trim replacement?

Not sure if this is the right forum, but this is a cosmetic maintenance question.

It's a minor thing, but I bought a Modern line which has the the black line trim around the windows, and after having it for a month, I definitely like the chrome trim on the Luxury line.

I think I found the top section online, if its called a "Finisher' side frame." About $140 per side. The bottom part may be called "duct cover"... But I'm not sure if I'm looking at the right parts.

Anyone know what the parts needed are called exactly, and do you think it would difficult to do? It's looking like this could become too expensive for just a cosmetic tweak if I can't do it myself.

Thanks!

These are the part numbers for the door trims. Am looking at changing my luxury line one to the sportline (high gloss black ones) once my car is delivered. Hope this helps!

Thanks!

I've inquired at the parts dept. about the chrome and here is what I found out:

Top: "Finisher, side frame" Chrome: $167.37 per side
Front doors: Belt molding (channel ceiling) $57 each
Rear doors: (duct covers): $57 each. part 26541
$562 total

I have the gloss black shadowline trim (Modern Line), which I've heard is more expensive. I'd be willing to consider a trade. I've read elsewhere that removing it is easy, but not sure. PM me if you're interested.
