Close, I have received my Bumperplugs Jet Black sidemarkers and will be putting them on in the next few weeks. Sorry I'm not a help.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do on my Macan when I get it. I don't like the orange reflector, for sure. But honestly, I am afraid the painted reflector isn't a perfect solution either. It looks so much better at a distance but close up it looks like, well, a painted reflector. It sort of looks like an oddly placed patch, or a mistake. I will have Rhodium Silver and the metallics are so hard to nail perfectly. This makes it stick out even that much more. I'm judging all this by another persons Rhodium Macan I've seen in person locally. Decisions, decisions.

I have JBM bumperplugs and @BradB , you are partially right, it's not a perfect match. Simple reason for that, however, is not that the paint is not the same color, as it is, it's the surface is different, plastic vs. metal.

However, if one doesn't go up close and actually stare at it, which after a while no one does, it looks great.

Thanks for the input! Yes, that makes sense. I'm just a worrier!
