Painted Rear Reflector Non-S Sport

Hello All,

With serious concern of sounding like a noob, I am regrettably asking if anyone has installed painted rear reflectors on a non-M Sport rear bumper. I found one thread of someone from Hawaii buying the painted rears, but nothing about install details. I have sited searched extensively now, including asking Nate @ iND before I purchased from fronts/rear/whiskers. He said they had not installed any, but may be doing so on there shop-owned car sometime soon. I looked at a few diagrams on realoem, but nothing really conclusively defines how to do so. I am just trying to avoid how the F10 guys are installing their's by mounting an "L" bracket to a piece of 3M tape and pulling like hell.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

-Thanks,
Ryan

I haven't replaced the rear bumper reflectors but I think if you check out Mod Bargains, Bimmian or a similar vendor I'm sure you'll find what you need. They often times have instructions how to install products too.

Although a very good suggestion, it appears they only sell front reflectors, and install details for the fronts only as well. Hoping to hear back from Nate at iND, but not sure if they have any urgency to do it. Thanks though for the suggestion, I tried that myself but was let down.


Anyone else out there in the same situation as me?

Actually no, if you look closely they do have the rear one at Bimmian and the install video. The install they show is for an e92 but look on their site or call them.



Good luck.

P.S. The install for the rear starts at about 2:00 min.
