Look forward to seeing that :thumbsup:

I got US spec OEM ones from LLL parts with some other bits and pieces. €19.20 each ( :o ) plus delivery and a two week wait. I couldn’t find any knock offs for cheaper. Because they are US spec, not easy to find over here; but not many other people will have them either 8)

That looks really smart. :thumbsup:

I never really liked the clear reflectors on mine. I think none would have looked better, but the matching amber just looks right!
Coupes because stunning!

Okay. Just ordered through LLL. $50 delivered (!) but it will finish the car off perfectly.

Good for you.

It’s not a bumper off job. Just take out the wheel arch rivets and undo the 8mm hex screw under the bumper. You can then detach the bumper from the side clips (push down and pull) and bend it back for enough access to change the reflectors. Less than 10 minutes a side, but make sure you have something long to retrieve the rivet pins.

Thanks for the direction, Am 100% sure I’ll be needing it when they arrive!
And its official; Monaco blue owners are the most helpful :thumbsup:
