F10 M5 Rear painted reflector DIY

If you break the cores coming off don't feel bad. Happens to the best of us

Place painters tape on edge to protect paint work-


Insert Nylon Prybar to release reflector clips






Reflector removed


Install painted reflector (no tools needed)


Done!

Yes they do have the rear (red) reflectors
Euro spec cars do not have the front (orange) corner reflectors

Is this pry bar specific in shape for the rear reflectors? I have the pry bar for the side markers and the yellow piece is too wide to fit and the pry bar seems too thick to get inside the reflector to pry off.

Bought some pry bars off amazon for 7.99 as Nate instructed - 3 minute DIY. Just be sure to insert the outside edge first as there's a clip that goes under, the two inner clips just push in. I made this mistake so had to remove and re-insert.

Have some good pics? I haven't ordered these yet, and wasn't sure that I would. I've done the fronts; they look great. Let's see some pics, if possible. You may push me over the edge to do this. Thanks.

Yup - ill take some tonight, car is filthy though, just a warning. I waited on this mod for a year, they sat in my closet for last three months. I like it, will probably like it more when i wash the car. A subtle mod, but should flow better once I have the rest of my OEM'ish mods on.
