About Pillar Trim Moulding

MINI MINI pillar trim moulding is a protective or decorative strip attached to the pillars on the vehicle.

The pillars on a vehicle are the almost vertical structural posts that support the window, door and roof areas of a car and connect the roof of the vehicle with the base of the frame. Usually steel or aluminium, the pillars in a car are solid structures, which are welded at one end to the car's frame and at the other to the roof panel and are positioned between the windows or doors. Pillar trim moulding is usually made of plastic or metal, such as brushed chrome, and can usually be attached to the pillar with clips or adhesive pads. It offers additional protection from minor damage such as scrapes and dings and also adds detail or accents to the car's styling.

A vehicle can be styled with trim/moulding in many places both internally and externally to improve the aesthetic appeal of the car. Trim moulding is designed for the specific make and model of the vehicle.  The MINI MINI pillar trim moulding offers protection from day to day wear and tear and protects the paintwork of the body panels. Trim or moulding is also offered as optional extras on many models and is used to enhance the car's appearance and styling.

The MINI MINI pillar trim moulding could become damaged due to wear and tear, sun damage or minor accidents.
