Here are pics of my car. You can see the front reflector that I am not fond of. I think it would be difficult to replace because it is so large.

I had a feeling mine would be smaller but when I saw it in person it was also huge. The size isn't a problem for changing them since the one you would install would be the exact same just painted. I'll post mine with the painted ones for you to see on tuesday. Once again BIG CONGRATS, I'm sure you'll enjoy her throughly.
They are 19" wheels. Does it not worry you to remove the old reflectors? How are they mounted on a car? I know the European version of my car doesn't have the reflector, so I guess on the US version they are just glued on. But, would it not damage the car to take it off?

Yeah, when I saw them on the car yesterday, they were bigger than what I remembered. They are huge and a stupid addition.

THAT is so cool! I am going to look under my car and see if I can see if/how they snapped those on. It probably is done very similarly to yours. Maybe my MB service guys could do it for me. I like that so much better. Thanks for those pics. They are a great idea.

My car came in with yours. I still haven't heard anything. I'm assuming it's stuck in customs.
