I almost ordered from Evosport, but saw they wanted $21 for UPS ground shipping? WTF? They're almost small enough to put in a regular envelope, they're not 50lbs. They smoking crack?

I tried getting mine from Evosport and even placed my order. However, I tried calling them once in a while to update my order and the guy would always tell me that its in the paint shop getting painted. After 2 weeks, I had enough of the bs and cancelled my order. Maybe I'll go with something that mounts flush?

I'm not impressed with the current flush offerings. Fit looks poor and install looks bad

Looks like you guys planning on doing a high quality job-

With the exception of painting having a body shop filling in the bumper or getting a euro bumper this option seems to be the next best thing.

Sorry I meant to clarify that they are original style reflectors. We took a stock reflector, made a mold, and are producing them from a stock piece for guaranteed fit and finish.

Here is a sample of what you can expect:

What's the difference between these and the other painted reflectors on the market (aside from the fact that yours aren'y original but of original "style")? They still aren't flush are they?

They will look and install exactly like your stock reflectors but be painted to OEM body color to match. They are not the flush style, they are the OEM style.

I just got mine from evosport, and installed over the weekend! I think they were backed up in the paint shop, but well worth the wait! The quality is very good - the raised numbers are gone, nice paint, and perfect oem fit. It's sooo nice not to have the freakin' orange up front any longer!! Less than good iPhone pic attached...
