      V60 R-Design Piano Black Window Trim-Plastic or Metal?

      Just brought home our new 2020 V60 R Design and getting ready to do a professional grade detailing. Ceramic Carpro UK 3.0 after machine polishing.
      Does anyone know if the window trim on the RD cars is plastic or metal? I know the B pillars are plastic and scratch just looking at them. But are the window trims plastic?
      I need to treat both to reduce scratching. I think the B pillars will need PPF, but I don't think the window trim frames can be done easily.
      Anyone with a 2019 or 2020 R know if the black glossy trim around the windows is metal or plastic?

      If you have the car home what you need help with? If you can’t tell use a magnet and check.

      Maybe 102 people looked, rolled their eyes, bite their tongue, and moved on...

      I honestly don't remember if it's metal or not, could look next time i'm out in the parking lot.

      I can report PPF works great on the B pillars and highly suggested. XPEL even makes a pre-cut kit for the B and C pillars if that's what you want

      Thanks for the suggestion AV...I ordered a set for the pillars. I'll polish out the light scratches and cover them with XPel...Thanks for the suggestion. Checking to see if the moldings are plastic with a magnet proved that they are not made with ferrous metal. They might be stainless steel or plastic at this point I don't know.
