Why not just "code out the ambers".

.... Because the amber portion is the color of the plastic that makes that section of the housing. Coding only turns off the amber colored bulb.

Thanks for the pics! That looks better than I had imagined. Might have to buy a set.

Is this the same vendor? Only $22 shipped but it's opaque. http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-1-Series...9d0bf8&vxp=mtr

Yeap it is the same seller. But for some reason he was not proposing the tinted one's before I contacted him and I was the guinea pig for fitment and color
Like I was saying the opaque one's are cheaper.

He can't guarantee the color match but he has a silver that is really close to TiAg.

Amber is the color of the built in reflector, as required by US DOT. Euro light assemblies have white reflectors per DIN. BMW chose to place the reflector integrated within the headlight assembly on the 1-Series.

On some models, BMW placed the reflector on the bumper or fender. The US code requires amber reflectors to be visible from the front and side, and red on the rear. Reflectors cant be coded out, but they can be covered over.

Is there a color to completely remove the orange indicator but not make it look painted over? If so I'd be very very interested in a pair!

I am not sure. Also it will cost more than 30$. 30$ is the price he proposed me for a group buy of 10 people...
If you want I can ask him what will be his price for 1 piece without waiting for 10 people !

Ivan, is there a possibility for a cross between the color you purchased and the color that someone pulled up (the flat black) from the ebay ad? In other words, dark enough to hide the orange but not dark enough that it looks like the fake glasses that my optometrist gives me to protect my eyes after checking my vision.

(Asked earlier but no reply)
