I picked up the mirrors from the bodyshop today and installed them.

BMW BMXer 09-12-2002 07:54 PM

they look like mirrors...

i think they woulda looked better carbon fibre at least people would notice then, they woulda looked kinda funno carbon fibre to...
uh ...

the don't look bad and thats good..

Kal 09-12-2002 07:59 PM

am i the only one who can't see the pics!?!? :huh?:

Kal 09-12-2002 08:00 PM

ooops

okay..i can see them now

looks good!

ROB89M3 09-12-2002 08:03 PM

I didn't wanna leave them carbon fibre cuz it would stand out too much.Then people would try and steal them as well.
Like this it doesn't stand out and blends in nicely with the car.
I gotta get used to them since they are so small.I hardly use the mirrors anyways.

Re: DTM Mirrors
 
No offense Rob, but i HATE how they look. They don't stick out far enough from the car, plus they are MUCH to "round" looking for a beautifully designed "squared off" car. But i still love your ride!
(i still think if you painted your wheels white, it would look Crazy!)

Rob can you get some further shots, cuz i'd like to see what it looks like from that view!

Thanks!

Fast_Gal 09-12-2002 09:02 PM

Looks cool!!*th-up*

Gamite 09-12-2002 09:08 PM

IMO, you shoulda kept them carbon fiber, they wouldnt stick out at all, they would blend in with the black molding and tinted windows. And they're smaller than the old ones, so they would blend in even more.

BIG TEETH!

Lil'Smoothie 09-12-2002 09:09 PM

looking good bro!*th-up*

can you take a pic from the front and back so I can see both mirrors on the car

ROB89M3 09-12-2002 09:11 PM

I will take more pics tomorrow.

EMPOWERD 09-12-2002 10:02 PM

I think you ruined them (once again Rob) by painting them that nasty color. Sometimes I wonder about your taste.:rolleyes: *drunk* *no-no*

Tracer 09-12-2002 10:23 PM

Jeeze Randy,

You are so harsh! You always make fun of Robb. I think he has a very sweet ass ride, even though he spends a lot of money on mods that you guys dont think are worth it. Maybe he has something CRAZY planned for the future! Something big and that will make everyone drool!

yeah, more stickers.....


.... or actually rev the car more than 5000rpm.

Rolled_Out 09-12-2002 11:12 PM

honestly rob, i like your car, BUt those mirrors are nasty, how much did you pay for them? i hope you didn't give up more than a few pubic hairs for them... :D

time to throw in an S54, then we're talking! haha

How about throwing in a twin turbo M5 engine?:rolleyes:

Why does everything come down to HIGH HORSEPOWER?
Thats not what being a car enthusiast is all about......

Fast_Gal 09-13-2002 12:09 AM

Well i like the car. Looks complete.... your car has the appearance of continuity.... no sudden breaks in the color. For example i hate white colored cars with carbon fibre hoods. It looks dumb....all white then dark greay! How gay!? If you need to shave off some pounds for racing, a lighter hood makes sense. If not then what is the point?

Most people use carbon fiber just for looks...it makes no sense saving weight and then puttin big ICE that makes the car even heavyer then before!!! It looks nice on some cars, but if they are darker colour, like Jeremy's E30...

They look how they should. A couple things bother me though, the paint doesn't look like an exact match to the rest of the car (i know how hard it is to match white though, and it's very close). The other thing is, i think you should have gotten replica fiberglass ones since you were going to paint them white anyway. Painting carbon fiber ones was a little bit of a waste in my opinion, unless you had lots of carbon fiber parts to save weight (like doors, hood, trunk lid, etc)

none the less they look nice, and i dont think you'll see too many e30's with those mirrors around toronto =)

now what i wanna see next is the whole ///M stripes and the rest of the stickers. As well i'd like to see your exhaust come out the sideskirts, that would kick ass.

*th-up*

tlaselva 09-13-2002 08:49 AM

That defiantly looks slick. :cool:
Glad you painted the mirrors.
Left CF, IMO would've looked cheesy.
Car defiantly has a nice continuity to it.

No more stickers. *no-no*
Any more and you treading in riceville.

jeremy 09-13-2002 09:25 AM

take some pics from the front of the car..i want to see how far out the stick...

I agree... the car looks really incomplete. If you're gonna put on a strange (to normal people) Dekra number sticker, why not at least put on the M colors? I'd definitely do the complete sticker package.... riced out? HaHa, that's where the sport compact race-look came from in the first place.... DTM CARS!!! and what better car to showcase it than the sickest one of them all?

Think about it.

Re: Stickers
 
Rob, ABSOLUTELY DO NOT PUT ANY MORE STICKERS ON YOUR CAR!

nah the full set of stickers would look pretty good...
a bit over the top for me but good

GR8 Ride 09-13-2002 04:25 PM

Well, I have to agree that not painting the mirrors would have been a much better idea...

It's nice to have a little contrast there, particularly on a white car. If they were fibreglass, then you would have to paint them. But CF, naw, shoulda left them blank.

Otherwise, I still agree that you need to complete the sticker package. It looks incomplete at the moment, and the ///M stripes over the back quarter would complete the car nicely....

Take a look at Louis car from the Club Race this past weekend....good looking vehicle there.

I just find that those mirrors make the car look MAJOR "Anorexic" especially for the WIDEBODY e30 m3. Again, this is JUST my opinion. The real question is: does Rob like them?

Well, obviously, thats the only question that really matters.

Damn guy, from the side you can really see how small the mirrors really are. Rob are the mirrors concaved? (sp?) Better watch your blind spot.

I think the mirrors look good, but you'll just have to drive more carefully now.

Full stickers w/ mirrors - Rob I'm sure you know this car.

ROB89M3 09-14-2002 06:36 PM

The mirrors are still not quite done. I gotta bring them back on Monday to get some more stuff done to them.
Will show the finished product after they are done.

EMPOWERD 09-14-2002 07:06 PM

Are you gonna fill in that hole with black paint to make it look like an air vent? I think that'll make it look better.

1BADBMR 09-14-2002 10:13 PM

The mirrors look good man! Not too many people have them. But I gotta ask howz the visibility? They look pretty small
