Thos reflectors are hideous. How come they don't at least integrate them into the wheel arches?

Yeh those reflectors are ugly, but it's something we have to live with.

Thanks for posting these so quick.

The reflectors don't look that bad to me. And by 'not that bad' I mean easily removable or replacable with painted fillers.

And he is from Germany. Thanks South for helping us all out here in the US. I am impressed you are not bored yet, at least bored with US specific happenings. Sure would like to see a close up of the stand/placard with the small text. Is the price there or not. Seems like if it were it would be all over Autospies...

Those reflectors are nasty...i wonder if there is anyway to get rid of them...maybe you can pry them off. Last resort you might have to paint them.

Oh because that way they can incorporate them for 09'........instantly dating the early production models and pissing off those who bought the 1st year batch..........

BMW loves to do these things...........

No way bored yet, reasons are the M3 itself being such a great car and the nice people here!

Why can't they just incorporate the amber reflector in the headlight assembly? That looks hideous. Did the steering group get to design this because they finished their work early?

That said, it's hard not to like the car anyway. Can that reflector be removed? Is there a hole beneath it for the wiring, or is it just a reflector without a bulb?

I am sure there will be no wires because its just a reflector. But there may be holes for it to be fixed. If not holes, the reflector may be pressed in to the bumper, like the 335i.
