I've tried to install a pair of white reflectors on the front bumper of my M but both cracked at the tips...trashed them. I've just receive another pair, although these are body colored (bimmerfreak.com)....and am curious to know how u guys that installed them did it.

the white ones are really hard to install for some reason...they dont fit, at least didnt fit my car...the bodyones are good...wrap a screw driver in a soft cloth and pry from the right side...should come out good! i think bimmian.com has a tutorial.

Put mine in with a little trouble, but the little buggers are very sensitive to the burrs from the origial casting and often need to be lightly filed/sanded/dremmeled (sp) Check the edges very carefully and remove any excess material from the edge. a half a mm is a lot in a tight fit piece. Also I used a bit of liquid car wsh soap to assist in the fit. Have done several since with the same good results on friends cars. Bimmian parts clear or painted are ok.

Good Luck
