The only lower trim I can think of is between the SEL and the SE models.. There's some chrome rubstrips on the doors that you get with the SEL.

I had a cel and was talking to a vw salesman at the dealership in Florida and he showed me a new Passat and said I could get the trim through VW. Basically its on the lower front and rear and replaces the black molding on the very bottom with your car color. Fills bumpers nicely and looks really great. Nothing ground effects looking but really cleans the look of 2012-2014. Has the exhaust opening too. I should have snapped a photo. Has nothing to do with rub strips or molding. Probably standard on all the 2015+. As you can see here http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=379691, I have put factory fogs and aftermarket side white rubstrips and an aftermarket lip spoiler on mine.

Sounds like you are referring to the factory body kit. It fits the 12-14s too. I have just the front installed on mine:

This thread has pics of a new (red)Passat being fitted with the kit:

His earlier black Passat is pictured with it as well
