Bumper Covers

I am about to have my OEM bumpers repaired and I know that there are inserts to cover the front and rear reflectors that can be painted to match but I am curious if anyone sells bumper covers that do not have the reflector cutouts. I think they are sold this way in Europe but haven't found any examples yet. Any info you can share would be greatly appreciated.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but all USA car bumpers must have reflector. It’s some kind of DOT law and regulation. Your option is bondo it out which isn’t hard for a body shop to do.

It is a DOT requirement for the US cars.

I think all US Fxx M6 front bumpers comes with the reflectors. IND sells painted ones. I just wrapped mine since I have BSM, 95% matching.

Correct. I have seen a bumper cover with out the reflectors in it. Only seen one thought. Also the IND painted are much easier to source.
