: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.

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?

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!

Hey JJ.,

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! :)

i am curious how much the rice shops sell them for

(plus i have a 4door, i forgot to mention that if that makes any difference)

Dude, make sure MTRD doesnt get too close to the rear of your car, he's gonna steal your plate cover..

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*
