    I've got that on the rear side glass surround trim on my estate, and that part definitely is plastic. Mercedes have surpassed themselves with this one.

    The B pillar exterior trim is made out of metal. I have taken them off before to replace mine.

    Just lower the window down, pull the weather strip out slightly, take out the screws, slide and wiggle the exterior trim out. The hardest part is to slide and wiggle the new one in, but I figured it out.

    Feels like plastic when you tap it, are we talking about the correct trim, I mean the vertical exterior trim between the two doors.

    yep got it, you can get MB part for £19 and this is just a plastic film to cover trim, not a lot of use as the corosion is obviously underneath.
    Thanks lads.
