Blacking out the E90

Previous owner had blacked out the front grill, front reflectors, and rear badge. Today's task was the side markers. I watched several videos and read posts about how to remove the existing markers. The first thing I did was buy a cheap set of trim tools off ebay for $4. This made the work a breeze. 2 minutes on one side and about 30 seconds for the other. I started at the back and worked my way forward. One side the whole black mesh came out with the marker, but on the other, just the marker came out.

IND delivered a great product - color matched side marker, dark tint LEDs and OEM replacement emblems.

Looks good.
Your neighbourhood looks very familiar. Is that a RAP or San Marco preservation sign on the house across the street. Do you live near the duck pond?
I'm off of Henricks on Brookwood Rd.

Looks good! I did the same to mine as well. The tinted LEDs make a big difference!
