I just did this today and have a couple additional tips to offer.

If you heat up the old reflector from the inside using a hair dryer, they will come off much easier. I wouldn't use a heat gun because the may melt your bumper cover. A hair dryer is the right amount of hot.

I also have an AW car. After removing the reflectors, the inner edge of the bumper cover is black. After swapping the first reflector, the black from that edge kind of reflected off the new white reflector. Not bad, but I am anal about that stuff. For the other reflector, I painted that inner edge with touchup paint. Much better! For darker color car this may not be an issue. Tip: but the touchup paint online. I ran to the dealer for it at the last minute and it was $45 (after BMWCCA discount)!!! Online I'm sure it's under $30.
