Reliable parts????????

What company has the best build quality for aftermarket exterior mods? Im looking to do the reflectors in a black paint match, gloss or crome black grill, carbon or red side marker, carbon or red hood intakes, carbon M3 badging, carbon rear spoiler etc. Any suggestions and or pics with reliable quality and maybe reasonable companies would be appreciated.

It seems as though there is so much back and forth on OEM and aftermarket. Hard to determine if its worth risking it with aftermarket. Might just go OEM so there is no question.

I'd stick to OEM as much as possible. A lot of vendors (Dealerships) sell the OEM Black Chrome Kidney Grills, Side Gills, Performance Spoiler.

The side markers: IND sell them painted

The hood vents: IND sell them painted

Carbon Badge: Never heard of such a thing. IND paints OEM Badges black

Just picked up the reflectors from mod bargains (we shall see how they look when they come in). Going to look at an OEM front grill bc the price difference isn't to much. Has anyone done the side markers with a carbon overlay rather than changing them entirely or are they crap?
