Sure. Your right it varies between car to car. If you don't like them you can send them back for a new set no problem Our painter has been with us for 20 years and he does amazing work. I'm sure you will be happy.

Nice, so how does shipping back and forth work? Would we need to pay? I think I finally will get a set.

It's tough to capture the tint in a picture. Those reflectors have a light coat on them. We will try to get some better pics up soon.

We have sold over 40 sets so far and have only had one come back that had an issue with one of the clips that retains the reflector. That customer recieved a new set and shipped the defective set back. Our color matching has proven to be flawless so far.

We'll have the painted front reflectors out in about 3-4 weeks. You guys can also place pre-orders as well.

pretty much a 5 min mod. gregW posted a thread in the DIY section...you can check it out. i did mine yesterday and dropped one of the reflectors into the bumper, DON'T DO THAT! It is a big pain in the ass, and I ended up scratching the thing. Anyway, its easy, just search for the thread.
