Waiting on the paint!

Just picked up a 2014 535i M Sport last Friday.
Space Gray over Dakota Black

Front Fender Reflectors: Space Gray Metallic A52 or Smoked
Rear Bumper Reflectors: Space Gray Metallic A52 or Smoked
Door Handle Inserts: Space Gray Metallic A52
Side Markers: Jet Black 668

Waiting on all black roundels for hood, truck, wheels and steering wheel.

I just received the clear front reflectors but I think I am going to tint them. I haven't tried yet but how did you remove them? Do you have to remove any panels or is it accessible via the hood?

First turn steering wheel to access wheel well. There are 3 screws to remove. The reflector has adhesive tape on long sides. I used a plastic pry tool and ran it the length of the reflector inside to free it from the fender body.

Not the best pics but here you go....I decided on the black vs. Space Gray to compliment the shadow line trim. It's subtle enough and came out pretty nice...imo

Looks clean and nice…Do you mind sharing where you purchased it from? I'm in the market for one as well.
