F34 Reflector Cover - My 1st mod

Those orange reflectors were bothering me and it looks like no one makes a painted cover for the 2014 F34. I was wondering if anyone has found a product online.

I fashioned a fix with 3M carbon fiber wrap. Heat gun to un-stick the reflector from the bumper. Remove it out thru the wheel well. Cover in wrap, then re-apply an adhesive and stick back in place.

Not the best...painting may be the better option. My first mod! Pretty exciting. New Rims are on the way.

Yeah IND makes them. I contacted them by email, and was able to get the front pair in Alpine White for $75 shipped. All they do is order the part from BMW, paint it, and send it out. Just find a number to call and they can hook you up. Also please don't do the carbon look haha, it looks terrible, just paint match. Also make sure you get ALL the adhesive off before putting the new ones on or there will be a noticeable seam.

What did you go with for wheels/tires?

I'm in the market for lowering suspension and depending how that goes, moving from the msport 18" wheels to a 19" option.

The GT wheel well is bigger than its 3 series counterpart. In fact, I park next to a 328 with the same 18" msport wheels and mine look noticeably smaller in the bigger frame.

ACS makes springs for the 3 GT. I advise waiting until after you've lowered the car before you decide on the wheels.

True. Suspension will happen first and then I'll decide if new wheels are even needed. Car is BSM so maybe I'll powder coat the wheels gunmetal?

Also, ACS will only lower 25mm? I was hoping to go lower, especially with how high the tail of the car sits up.
