Another option is the Acexxon Painted Rear Reflector Replacements.

Didn't really realize how much wider it could make the hips look until some recent posts.. I couldn't agree more. It looks much wider and more aggressive from the back now. One hour is right: 40 minutes for the first side and 20 for the second. I agree with earlier posts about pinching lower clips, then middle, then top. Not too tough a mod, and very worth it...

Just installed the matte slatted! Surprisingly EASY install. Looks great!

Thank you IND Distribution for getting these to me (Nate and Ryan are the best!). Good job Acexxon!

And thanks ultramagnetical for your YouTube video, made the install a breeze.

I've combed through this thread about a half dozen times. Love your stuff and the stuff that you have coming.

I was talking about the newer painted white rear reflectors. Holding out for a picture of white on white. Then will decide.

Anybody take the time to dremel out the slats?

What is the most popular choice. Looks like matte slat so far

Matte Slat was outselling the honeycomb for awhile but now its been pretty even.

The body color looks good to me but I'm curious how the "clear" color would look for the rear and front reflectors. Any plans for those in the future?

Looks good! I have BSM and was considering slotted, too. Are you happy with the look IRL? Do you have any pics of straight on showing whole backend?

Err, I still need to get used to it tbh. On BSM it definitely is less noticeable. Reminds me more of an M4 for some reason.

Product quality and fitment is very good though. Installation so-so. Opted for the IND DIY & can't say it was a clean or perfect job as those clips are real sons of bitches.

I'll try and send you some more picture's tommrowo!

What we noticed is that they are hard to turn up on pictures, but are very noticeable in real life.

The installation is easier done from the inside out, some people take their wheels off to make it easier.

My guy here at the bodyshop does the installation in 20 mins by jacking the car up a bit and without taking the wheels off, but he's done it several times.
