Thumbs up Glacier Silver with painted reflectors..

well i finally got my F30 this week, it was a painful 8 weeks, but well worth the wait. the first 150 miles have been excellent, i am really enjoying having a larger car (and 4 doors) after turning in my e89 z4.

i will share more pics this weekend, but i wanted to give a quick shout out to my man LongTran (PM - longtran@ltbmw). i have done business with him in the past, and he was able to make me a set of painted reflectors before all the typical bimmer vendors online. he does high quality work, so if you are interested in a clean look go with some painted reflectors from LongTran (obviously only required for US cars with the stupid orange reflectors).

aside from the painted reflectors i just had 20% ceramic tint installed on all the windows.

20 more pics below, on this page

although AZ doesn't require a front license plate, and i ordered after that nasty front bulge was standard issue, i am still unhappy with the front fascia of the F30. i have had several BMWs and NONE of them have these horrible dimples, i assume for states that require plates, on the front bumper!

i guess the 2015 F30 LCI will take care of these.

Awesome looking car and color, Matt! The silver color turned out beautiful!

I agree, those two holes in the bumper are pretty nasty still. In a way I'm glad I have to have a front plate lol =)

That color really contrasts nicely with the black trim. Looks great.

Painted reflectors are such an improvement on the F30. Nice job. More photos please!

@ matt_335Ci, did you also paint the rear reflectors? Just wondering. If so, guess you'll update with pics.

All the best, and thanks for representing Glacier Silver!

Looks great!

I just ordered a pair of sapphire black reflectors from Longtran. The painted reflectors make a huge difference.

I don't mind the ones in the back either and don't plan on changing them to painted...not a bad idea to keep them if you parked on the side of the road at night.
