Point me in the right direction please!

Hey guys!

I was hoping for someone to point me in the right direction as to a thread on here where I can get info on DIY tinting of these disgusting orange/red reflectors. My friend is advising I use Plastidip so I can just peel it off if needed. I was actually thinking of tinting it. What do you guys think?

Also can someone please tell me if its possible to set the temperature controls in a sense that when I start the car the fan does NOT automatically go on?? This always erked me with all my BMW's...can this be done?

Just get 3M 1080 vinyl wrap in the color you want and cover the reflectors. That is DIY and easily removable.

You can probably get coding to address your fan concern.
