You can either take your rear "relectors" off and have them painted by a professional bodyshop, or you can buy these reflectors from any local dealership and have a professional bodyshop paint it.

Thanks for the advice Hack, but I just want to find a place on the web where I can order them pre-painted to match my car color, like the ones they sell on bimmertoy.com for the front reflectors. Does anyone have a pic of a coupe with this installed. Curious to see how it'll look.

I'd like to see that too.. I have the fronts painted..would be cool to see pics of the rears. Hey loan guy, I used to have the link to bimmertoy.com, but that site is not working.. is it spelled a different way, or does anyone know? thanks

god that looks good! Where'd you get 'em, same place posted? Did they fit perfect?
Actually, i just had my bodyshop paint both the existing front and rear reflectors at the same time. They fit perfectly because they are just the regular oem reflectors. :thumb:

I have my front painted already..how much did they charge you? curious :angel:
Actually, not too much. I did it a little over a year ago and my bodyshop charged me $50 total for the front & rear reflectors and the side M3 mirrors as well. But that's probably because I have a good relationship with the owner of the bodyshop and my friends and I bring them lots of business.

However, it is usually a hassle for a bodyshop to paint two little pieces like the reflectors unless they are already painting another car of the same color. So even though it is a small job, some places charge a lot for it because they don't want to go through the trouble.

The price at the Bimmian link is very good since that includes the parts, paint, and shipping. I've never heard of that company though and I'm not sure if they use OEM parts, so I can't speak on the fit. Good luck.

I don't have a big close up of the mirrors available right now, but when i get a chance, I'll take one for you and post it or email it to you. It's about time I wash my car and do a little photoshoot anyways. The weather's starting to get pretty nice around here...:thumb:
