The best way is to find a good paint shop. They remove them, prep and and spray.

Picture below is film that I tried. Left is reverse light covered. Right is with the reverse light cutout. Didn't like it at all. Took it to IND in Chicago. They pulled off film and painted. I like the darker tint with reverse lights being left white. Very difficult to do with film.

Evolution exhaust system for the BMW X5 M (E70) - Akrapovi




LeMans where can I order the set from? Tried google: no luck... Also just to make sure (know u answered to the previous question): these can be bought seperately without buyng the whole exhaust system? And they fit on stock exhaust?

Thanks in advance

thanks for all the suggestions...kidney grill already blacked out. Front windows as dark as State of Indiana allows. I also like the akropavic CF tips, just having a hard time figuring out where to order them online. Same with the CF roundels.

Finally, I'm toying with the idea of re-badging the rear with either a black or CF X5M...what do you think?
