Great looking car in a great setting. Nice pictures. I'm suprised Spanish owners also get the ugly orange reflectors...

I have no idea why every has such an objection to the reflectors. If I had a choice, yes I would go for a clean bumper, but I think the "colored" inserts look worse.

with that being said i don't care much for the painted. If bmw would have at least made them mount flush the painted mod would look so much better. I might opt for the clear reflectors

I felt the same way until I mounted my painted versions and saw what a difference they made, especially on black! There in fact flush mount options out there but they painted OE pieces are superior in fit and finish.

Congrats and thanks for the pics! Another example of how the M colors look different depending on the lighting and background. Wish I was in Spain with my M right now. Jealous!

They are temporary plates until I get the proper ones. I agree, these ones are ugly but i will have them for just 2 more weeks.
