| Mod - Painted Reflectors
Mod Benefit - cleaner looking appearance
Cost - about $10 total for paint, primer and clear.
Difficulty - Easy, just takes time.
Painting the stock front and rear bumper refelctors vs. paying close to $100 for a set (front and back, or $60 for fronts).
I used Metailic Silver for mine. Did three coats of primer, 4 coats of color and 3 coats of clear. Not an exact match, but pretty close. The more Zanio (polish as they are now painted as well) I put on them with the rest of the car, the closer they match.
Mods - M3 Style Lip Spoiler, ACS Replica Roof Spoiler (bowed in the middle), Predator Chromium Angel Eyes, P46 Xenons, Smoked Side, Corners and LED Tails, Blacked out Kidney Grills, Self Painted Bumper Reflectors, K&N Drop-in Filter, 19" Miro M6 Reps in Time Attack
