Chrome/Aluminum window trim, need replacement info please!

So, had the car a week now, and already got this problem. The rear passenger side window trim piece came off, I am guessing in a carwash. I will be hand washing or just using touchless carwashes from now on. But I did not think a factory trim piece would get pulled off like this.

If someone knows the part number, or where I can find a replacement for it, that would be most helpful. Also, the piece in front of the missing piece is faded and weathered and looks different from every other piece, so maybe a replacement for that or a way to clean it. Thanks for the help.

According to www.fordparts.net that part is about $100 if I'm looking at the correct part.

It is under Body -> Quarter panel.

Village Ford on the forum could give you a better price if you post there.

Edit: Added a crappy pic of it

Thank you. I just spoke with my local dealer, and they have a 25% off coupon for any one part, so that piece will cost me $72. Still way too much money for what it is, but what can I do? I tried finding a parts car to get them from, but the only one I found that has them the guy just wants to sell the whole car not individual pieces. Oh well, gotta get it fixed.

Check on eBay, you may be able to get the cheap M3 + Chrome... not the same quality and may require some adjustement but will be under $20...

This may be an option, but I really have no idea as there isn't much detail on the product:

http://www.amazon.com/Triple-Chrome-...me+window+trim

If it does work, you have plenty of spares

These overlay type trim pieces are attached with double sided tape. The piece that I have missing is attached with those 4 clips in the picture, and there is no way around buying an OEM part from Ford to replace it. They really know how to take any option away and make a guy pay $75 for a 16 inch long piece of trim.....but I have no choice.
