as you may know, living in AZ you don't have to worry about state inspections like other states. so the chances of you ever having a problem with painted reflectors are totally worth it.

True enough, Since I just leased this one, as I didnt want to wait to order one, I'll leave it stock.

in case you were wondering, I have traded in 3 leased BMWs with painted reflectors and they were fine with it. I even pointed it out each time.

i just wanted to say it's funny how i can always tell when someone is from AZ. i didn't even have to look at your avatar to know. seems like every house in AZ is the same brownish color, no grass, and tiled roof.

Grass and asphalt shingles don't do well in when it's 110! Most homes are governed by HOA's out here, so to avoid pink, green and purple houses, they usually only allow earth tones.

That's a really nice looking car. Thanks for posting the glacier silver in the luxury line, been waiting awhile now to see that. I'm about 90% sure that that is the colour I'm going to get.

i find it very unusual that only the F20 and F30 have Glacier Silver and all other BMWs are Titanium Silver. Is the color code the same? I have had 2 Titanium Silver BMWs in the past and based on my memory the paint looks the same?

I haven't seen a Titanium Silver in years. The Titanium may have more flake in it. The Glacier looks "creamy". The only other Silver I can personally draw experience from is a Brilliant Silver from Benz, circa 2001-2006, which had more metal flake than the F30 Glacier Silver.
