For U.S. members worried about the front amber/orange reflectors, please read this..

I've read numerous posts where people are worried about the front reflectors. They think they're stuck in there for good, cannot be replaced by painted reflectors, or that the hole has to be filled with a mold and the bumper resprayed. No need to worry. The reflectors on the 08 M5 are the same as those on the 08 M3 and I've already replaced them on the M5. The instructions below are for the E46 M3 in particular, but they apply to the 08 M3 and M5 as well. If you want them painted, any BMW associated body shop can paint and clear coat your reflectors to your individual color. Find your paint code in the link below and tell the body shop to paint the reflectors your particular paint code. Should be a $50 job at most places.

EDIT: My reflectors are in!
