Side marker and front bumper reflector replacement

I have a black 06 A4 S-Line and would like to change the stock side markers and front bumper reflectors to smoke colored ones. Any idea how hard it is to change these parts out? Do I have to remove the front bumper? How do I get to the side markers? While I got you here, anybody install that smoke tint from EBay on their rear lights? Thanks in Advance...

if you want to do it yourself, or even fit replacements its easy.

Side-markers:
Take a very small flat-head screwdriver, and wrap the tip in masking tape. Then just pop out the side marker. They are both really easy, and you wont break them if you are careful.

Front reflectors:
There are three torque nuts on the front when you lift the hood. Remove them. There are two I think 12mm bolts behind the wheel wells on either side. You need some extentions to reach them. Remove them along with the two torque bolts that you will readily see connecting the front clip with the fender. You also will need to remove your undertray, and I think there are 6 flat head screws to do that. That's all you need to remove your front clip, and only takes about a half hour. After the front clip is removed, there are 2 phillips heads screws holding each of the reflectors in place. Remove them and the reflectors pop out.

If doing this on the cheap, buy some paint, and lightly spray each part. Wait to dry, and re-assemble. This costs about 98 cents. If you want new parts expect to pay upwards of 70 dollars plus shipping. Have fun!

Accelerate until you see god, then lift off... slightly.

Thanks B7S-Line...The side marker sounds like cake but the reflectors are another story. Maybe I should incorporate the reflectors in with the next oil change or the next time I have to remove the undertray.

It's actually much easier than that. I literally just did my side markers and reflectors about 5 minutes ago. All you really need to do is turn the front wheels to one side or the other, undo the two frontmost torx screws on each side and reach in behind the marker and squeeze the clips so they pop out.

super easy.
