Goodbye reflectors

Had my front reflectors filled and rear bumper cover repaired by Active Auto Body, Portland. Did a good job.

Wow that looks amazing, can't even tell that they were even there before. How much did that run you?

I had front and rear done. Rear has some minor damage. Total was $1,600. Looks like the front was roughly half of that. They guarantee it for as long as I own the car. The difference from painted reflectors is surprisingly large, at least for me at this time.

Wow that looks great! I didn't cover my reflectors up on my 08 but was thinking of ordering the euro for my 11 that comes next week. Active did a great job for you and that's great to hear they will stand behind it! $800ish sounds fair too...

Last I checked it was close to $2k to get the euro cover into the US. Have you found it fo less?

Not necessarily, we have OEM EU bumper covers on the site for about half that.

You can't even tell the reflectors were even there in the first place on your M3.

Good to know. Of course, you still need to factor in painting and R&R.

Yeah I'm still waiting on a quote and to see if the dealer is interested in purchasing the US bumper (my CA thinks they may be)...I'll post some more info here as soon as I get it. But if the total price is much more than 1200 or so I think Active may be the way to go!

Looks like my delaer's "gray market importer" isn't as useful as he used to be ...He is going to connect me with Rich at Active instead...is this who you went thorugh Greg?

Thanks!

Sweet! My euro bumper just arrived yesterday (to replace my dented US bumper) and I installed it last night. Based on the photo above, your setup is indistinguishable from the euro route! Congrats on the very clean look.
