View Full Version : My new M3 mirrors!
01-28-2002, 12:13 AM
:D I'm really happy with them. It looks way better than stock, and it was my final touch to the front view of my M3 "look" conversion. Don't worry, I don't have the M3 badge.

they are actually aftermarket, can you tell the difference? :)

You should get smoked lisence plate covers.. your car is kinda that smokey colour.

by the way, how CAN you tell if it's an aftermarket?
i would like to know :P

I can tell cuz I have the same mirrors but havne't installed them yet. They arent' exactly the real m3 mirror shape... but hey for 90 bucks CDN I dont' care! Plus, on darker cars they are even less noticible.
MTRD: Where do you get your parts painted?

looks good, I didn't notice just how much of a differnce they really made until I look at your sig pic.

The only noticable difference's up close between the OEM and aftermarket is that there is a slight curve in arms holding the mirror, not even noticeable unless you compare a BMW with real M3 mirrors side by side with mine. Also, mine are manual adjustable.

DunDan, I get my bumpers painted at Car Wings auto (Koiston). I paint all the little things myself, bumper lips, splitters, mirrors, moldings, etc.
328DTM, if you don't know what the difference is, thats good enough for me! :P
I only paid $60Cdn for them and got them used from Bimmersport (Charlie), they came painted, lucky me!
I wish I had mirrors:idea:

if you want mirrors, I can get them for you but they are only manual adjustable.

i'd pay $60 for some 4door m3style mirrors painted or not, sign me up =)
(heck i'd pay $90 too if that's what they are, i need new mirrors considering my blue glass is flaking into a brownish colour on my drivers side, and the glass alone is $100 or something)

Hey djcontra, I don't think I can get them for $60 anymore. A friend of mine ha a set he is selling for $100, they are not painted same as mine but they come in black colour and brand new. I bought mine slightly used thats why they were painted and a cheaper as well. Please let me know if you are still interested. Thanks! :)
02-01-2002, 10:47 AM
i'll let you know
i am curious how much the rice shops sell them for
if it's the same price, i'd prefer to get them new
i'll keep you posted
(plus i have a 4door, i forgot to mention that if that makes any difference)
02-01-2002, 11:23 AM
The ones MTRD has are new too..
02-01-2002, 04:40 PM
Station 28 sells them for $226 + tax and that is the cheapest I have seen, let me know, thanks

Hey MTRD, ya need the chrome chained plate covers, I 've ordered a set for mine. jk jk :puke:
02-01-2002, 10:16 PM
Dude, make sure MTRD doesnt get too close to the rear of your car, he's gonna steal your plate cover..
02-01-2002, 11:00 PM
Can you get me the Gold Chain cover, PLEASE! I've been looking all over for it. And a set of windshield wiper nozzles that light up but in red! Oh please! Oh please!:D
Oh, I almost forgot, a set of chrome wipers too! j/k hehe:P

Charlie, you forgot to ask Jerry for a Mugen sticker for your windshield!~!
and a HKS for the rear.
02-02-2002, 12:27 AM
Hehe, don't laugh gamite, but Jerry actually has a HKS foam filter in his BMW!
Jerry, you almost had me with that chain licience plate thingy.. if you had one of those, I think I would have to never talk to you again! *uzi*
02-02-2002, 01:01 AM
Oh yeah.. forgot about that.. Jerry has more HKS parts than half those ricers with hondas..
Hey I got my ractive m3 mirrors but I need to know how to thread them? thanks
