Your's looks the best by far. I was wondering how it "matched" so well...it's all one color! Nice

Great mod. The stock reflectors don't blend with the lines of the car IMO.

I wish someone would photoshop Estoril Blue combinations for the yet to be released M Performance front splitter.

Painting the bottom horizontal splitter below the chin, leaving the side air scoops black.

The reverse.

Paint all of it.

I ordered my M Sport Alpine White reflectors as well (no car yet .. similar to you).

Funny .. when I opened them, the reflectors looked exactly like yours in your pic (looks kinda "silver"/"grey"). I thought IND had sent me the wrong set. Got so worried, I drove to the dealership to put them against an Alpine White car in the lot.

Sure enough .. paint matched. Alpine White is weird looking indoors ... doesn't really look "white". Once outside though ... looks fine. Funny how different light can make a difference.

I had the same reaction at first when I opened the box in my office and the reflectors didn't look white AT ALL when compared to all of the white papers strewn across my desk.

Yes, they are the red reflectors for the rear M Sport bumper painted "dark shadow" to match the M Sport diffusor. It was $150 total for the front and rear reflectors from iND, shipping included.

They appear to be a pretty easy pop out/pop in, they are held in with clips on the back. If you go back in the first page of this thread there are photos-- 'shopped and actual.

Just go to their website and send an email/inquiry telling them exactly what you are looking for, they will reply with details to order and pay. Very responsive and nice to work with-- there was a small error with my reflectors and they handled it very well--very fast shipping and service.

I keep mine unpainted for functionality, I park on the street a lot at night and prefer that my car is seen by the already speeding drivers in my residential neighborhood.

Did you use a discount code. I got quoted $170 plus shipping from ind.
