Question Anyone tried AutoTecknic's painted reflectors?

I was thinking about getting these for my IB E90 M3.


-Has anyone tried them?

-If so, how's the color, quality, and fitment?



Thanks for any help possible!

We just started stocking this brand and they are excellent quality, I can vouch for the paint finish.

Nawaaz, I'd ONLY get something that was the OEM piece painted over.

I got mine through 808 and am happy. IND sells the same pieces, as do a couple other vendors (**********s, etc). I think there's enough threads out there bitching about reflector fitment that I can safely say stay away from non-OEM, and whole-heartedly recommend IND's pieces.

I got my from Simon@RennSpec. It's a non-OEM pieces. There is a very tiny gap on the right top corner of the reflector. Over all I will give the paint job and fitment for 97%. You will only see the gap when you are super close to the reflector and stare at it. RennSpec also sells the OEM too.

Thanks Johnny. I saw those also for $5 more compared to the AutoTecknic one's.

Here's the link to the OEM one's at Renn-Spec: http://www.renn-spec.com/product_p/bmw-e9x-ref.htm

Are these the OEM one's that are the best set of painted reflectors out there?

Auto Tecknic reflectors are a great product also, I have a few friends running them and they look and fit almost flawlessly.
