I removed my side markers and much prefer the look.
When my car was federalized back in 1985, what they did was to install another light socket in the turn signals to provide the side marketing. You could do his.
I have never been to a DIY car wash with a wand capable of stripping paint. More times than I can count I have held the tip against the paint to remove bugs or tar. Granted, this was on a well used Jeep Cherokee but that only helps my case. Chrysler didn’t learn how to make white paint adhere to sheetmetal until after the 90’s.
i agree, the PO removed the front ones when he painted the car black. i removed the rear ones recently (along with the front antenna hole) to clean up the body lines ... much happier that way. your red looks very nice, looks a bit different than the standard verona
No reflectors on my cars, but to each his own.

Those generic side markers find themselves on everything.
It is not that I am advocating for the side markers, just that it is not necessarily a sin to keep 'em.
Considering that my 100 LS did not have side markers, perhaps . . . absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Here is photo that shows a better example of the color. The two previous photos that I posted were taken at an event and not by me. I think the photos may have been edited/filtered.
Gratuitous photo of my car sans reflectors
Interesting that the current 2800CS on BAT does NOT have them on the front, but on the rear; just like my car!
If I ever do any Paint Work on my car Side Markers will be Deleted period
Anyone who drives their e9 as many miles as Andrew can do whatever he/she wants with the car!
Regarding the reflectors, and of course its all opinion, I think the rear ones are OK, but the front ones do look out of place, especially with the Euro-style bumpers
my coupe lost its front markers when the PO painted it. while my car has been resting its tires in the paint shop ... the rear side markers fell off and the holes clogged themselves. my coupe also had a front antenna ... that fell under the same fate. it looks so much better without.
