Flush mount Reflectors @ Bimmerfest

Hey guys, I am very close to being complete with these flush mount reflectors and I am hoping to take some sets with me to Bimmerfest for in person install and sales. Unibody and my self have decided to sell them for $100 + shipping in the USA but for our Bimmerfest friends we will be seeing them their on site for $80 a set. Save your self's the $30 difference and see them in person.

I still have yet to paint them and get them ready for photo's but I will be working on getting photo's online prior to Friday.

Just a FYI

They are made of a durable polyurethane
They will not have any lettering on the visible side
they will be pre-painted Factory OEM finishes

I will try to have at least 3 sets of each color and I do expect them to go fast!

Please be advised I am only 75% sure that we will have them ready. More updates will be posted as we get closer to Friday.

If you're interested in one of the sets feel free to post here and let me know what color so that I can bring enough.

Jinxter:

First off, thanks for taking the initiative and doing this. I think it's a great idea, and from what I've seen, should work out nicely.

I will be there at Bimmerfest (car will be in the Brembo booth (inside)) and would love to purchase a set from you. Where will your car be?

PM sent.

You probably only need like 1 red, 1 jet black, 1 interlagos blue, 1 sparkling graphite, 5 space grays and 100 alpine whites.

One additional concern about these flush reflectors. For light colored vehicles you will need to touch up the "original BMW cut out" of the bumper so that it looks better. I havent touched mine up yet so the pictures you see there is none touched up. I have the molds for the refelctors complete. I will be working on the bracket molds tonight.

Nice progress and very interesting. How will they be installed? Also can the gaps be reduced? Im not too fond of the large gaps around the edges...id rather have a protruding reflector than a outline with large gaps.
