Placing vinyl over reflectors

Hey everyone,

I have been searching for a while trying to find the right color and type of vinyl to place over my reflectors. I found quite a few threads on the DIY vinyl reflector project but still couldn't get the answer I needed. I have a 2011 328 xDrive in Jet Black. Sorry if this has been answered before, but can someone give me the exact product name and number of vinyl that will best match the Jet Black color of my car? Also, can I get this at a local store? Thank you.

I personally wouldn't mess with vinyl, I think you should go for the painted reflectors.

If you do want to go the vinyl route, 3M branded vinyls seem to be good quality.

It will be pretty hard to get one that matches. I'd just do the paint matched ones and save the time of wrapping them.

You'll also probably need to order the vinyl off the Internet.
