EU has made any change in the relevant regulation (think the area which must be visible in the mirror has been increased, not sure). Guess the reason is to improve visibility of objects behind.

Yes, and the new pedestrian safety requirements which have altered the front styling of many vehicles for the worse.

Since no actual car exists with the bicycle reflector (just the photoshop on the website) it seems nearly certain it will be like the ones at the LA show.

You can't get them deleted. It's not an accessory.
It's called "law".

I assume someone could buy a Euro front bumper and have it replaced. Does BMW sell the bumpers pre-painted or do you have to paint them at a shop?
Plus you could always recoup some cash by selling your US spec bumper on eBay

Maybe an easier thing would be to buy clear reflectors to replace the POS orange ones.
