Installed blacked out rear reflectors. VERY happy with them. They are actually LED lights that can be wired into the brake lights, but that's probably not going to happen. Need to do something about that shiny license plate frame.

Cquence is the company who makes them. From this angle, it does look like an aluminum hat on it but it's just a normal looking rotor.

I don't think so. I was able to retract and push it out easily by spinning it from the back. Guide pins moves freely as well. We will see what happens in the future. Hopefully it's nothing
