I was wondering if anyone has seen, or painted the black body molding on the XC40, to match the body colour? We like the look of the XC60 molding, and we have seen metallic grey, but ours is metallic white. I cannot use photoshop, but was just wondering what people think.

Trust me, I’d love for the whole car to be body color but they aren’t made that way and paint will not stick to that plastic for any length of time.

Check out Plastidip. It's a spray-on rubber coating. I've used it on everything from tool handles to painting wheel rims and even painting brake calipers. It's pretty durable stuff, handles high heat, and comes in a bunch of colors. If you spray on several coats, it'll peel off no problem. I'd favor that rather than paint because you can take it off any time without damaging the surface and you can fix damage with a simple spray. Lots of youtube videos showing how it works.
