They look like they rummaged through an old e46 parts bin.

I'm with Mantis on this. They don't look right, get the painted ones.

Btw, I really like what you've done with the exterior of your car. It is easily the best looking SG M3 on the forum.

I was more joking about the Mantis/Credibility thing. Your entitled to your opinion.
Just my usual sarcasm....

Looks great to me. Regardless of personal preference, I don't understand how someone could say they look "gross", "cheap", or "incomplete" - just seems odd.

I would opt for the painted ones if someone could make them flush...although I don't think that is realistic since there are subtle differences from one bumper to the next. Even on my bumper, the two holes weren't mirror images of each other.

I think the clears actually look decent. I would like to see the smoked on Space Gray. Anyone have that combo?

Who's selling the clears and the smoked clears. I've never been into the painted reflectors for the same reason that swamp mentioned. I think this is a better solution, especially on Space Gray.

I've been drinking, but I just reread this thread and still didn't see it mentioned where these reflectors are being sold in this thread. Obviously it's in one of the links that I didn't click on.
