The only reason I've found to be jealous of F30 owners.

Flush-mounted reflectors... no warts!

Agreed, but not any different than a E92.

I wonder if the F8X M3/4 will also have stuck on reflectors as per tradition to fuck up the front end look with a total add on afterthought.

They will probably be the same as the Msport reflectors, which are completely different from other f30 reflectors.

Wife's Z4 has flush reflectors. The painted ones on hers look much cooler than the ones on mine.

F8X M3/4 will have flush reflectors like the F30 3-series!

Recently a production version of the M4 was posted with reflectors on it.

Good eye!

Wish you were closer to do a video of our cars. Have been admiring your for a while... we have very similar taste. Just ordered the extended shift knob from you guys couple days ago. 3/4" shorter than standard in semi gloss black to pair up with my UUC SSK + DSSR.

My painted reflectors are quite the conversation piece. Inquiring minds.
