The Chicago Auto Show had waay better M colors.

M3s had silver, M6 had red and the M5 had black.

Much better than the all-white Ms @ the LA Auto Show.

The all-white look was too monotonous and boring.

My first mission is to goo gone them off!
More than likely, they are installed just as they were on the e46 M3. There is a cutout in the bumper. Here is a mod many e46 M3 owners did:

Front is good, nothing to complain about, but the back, just hideous

Just not feeling it, so coupe rules IMHO

Ugh about the reflectors... my only complaint about the car. Too bad. I guess I might eventually wind up at my local bodyshop for a patch job. They do amazing work and very cheap. I would imagine it would cost about $300 to cover up the holes and repaint the front bumper. Anyone else planning on doing something with them?

Yep, definitely not glued on. They are attached via tabs that go through holes in the bumper.

Nice to see the coupe made it to Chicago. Initially when the ALMS car was there, no coupe was in the display. On the flipside, too bad the took they ALMS car down

Agreed completely. The back is a nightmare, while the front and sides are perfect.
