Painted reflector state inspection

I have IND painted reflector on the front bumper and Sterling BMW won't do the inspection. I never had any issues with them for past 3 years until now. What the hell? Is there any indy shops will do the inspection with painted reflector?

TIA

I went to Dulles Auto Clinic in Sterling for my inspection. Passed without issues and I also have color matched reflectors.

Dude WTF - someone is having a bad day and decided to pass it on to you! Rough!

Although - due to coronavirus, you now have 60 days of no inspection.

"Vehicle inspections
On a final note, Gov. Northam announced that they would be asking Virginia State Police to suspend enforcement of vehicle inspections for the next 60 days."

Wow, crazy. I'd just get some cheap orange reflective tape and do a quick/dirty temporary wrap.

I just went to local VA auto and Tire shop in Ashburn and passed w/o any issue. I guess dealership wanted to hit me with every single thing since my factory warranty just expired a week ago.
