Painted grills, reflectors and mirrors. Alpine White | Coral Red

Just wanted to share a few quick pics. Just got some parts back from my body shop. Had them pop off the grills, reflector and mirror caps since I can't stand the silver.

Just some small cosmetic stuff but I think it really cleans up the front end!

Before:


Rolled around like this for a few days


Some parts:


Finished!




edit: some quick new pics

The grills and mirrors were painted gloss black. I got the 2nd allocation from my dealer behind the launch car so at the time of order none of the M performance parts were available.

Had the following done:
Paint reflectors body color
Paint mirror caps gloss black
Paint front grills gloss black

I knew the owner of the body shop so he hooked it up for real cheap, basically what it would've cost me to buy the grills

Nope, the body shop said they just undid the top bolts for the bumper and were able to reach in and unclip them.
