front end cosmetics, Tacky or not

I'm not a fan of the orange reflectors in the headlights, since I ordered the car I started prepping to hide them, let me know what you guys think, thumbs up or down.
The last 2 are phone pics, the colors are more real but the quality is nul.

Hi there.

TBH I wouldn't do it to my own car, but I think it looks fine. How does it look when its lit up?

I would suggest to look for white plastic parts, they should be available in Europe.

The reflers don't light up I believe, and the silver bulb lights up regular orange

Thanks April1, thought about it but that requires opening the headlight casing and I don't feel comfortable doing it

Sorry, off topic but I see you have a German trifecta (BMW, Audi, Benz)! I have the Audi A4 & BMW X3. Which do you like the best?

Thanks I used a piece of regular window tint that I had, looks much better in person.

I'm new to BMW's and the i-drive, so for now I still prefer the mmi on my audi, also I like the simplicity of customizing settings and controls through vagcom, but I only like the audis with the technology package cause it comes with the controls around the gear lever area.

I think it looks pretty good. I thought about doing something similar but wasn't sure how well the film would look on top of the light instead of inside the light.

Much better than spending $2k+ on Euro lights though.
