its chrome, you can't just paint chrome. alot of prep, sanding/etching before primer and base/clear

i am aware of that, that's why i want to take it off first, so the preping would be a lot easier...looks like you've done it before...did your's come black, or chrome?

couldn't you just order the black trim from Audi from a 1.8T.... or even go to a wrecker or vagparts.com or something?

The 1.8t's come with black trim. The 2.8's come with chrome.

As far as I've seen it can't be done to remove that trim.
