Shop Recommendation For This Conversion...

I plan to do an E46 M3 mirror conversion on my car which requires shaving of the base plate to make it fit onto my sedan (E46 330i). I don't really have the time to do it.

Does anyone have any shop recommendation where they won't rush the job and get it done properly?


See link below on what needs to be done. Basically the studs and base plate needs to be slightly modified (shaved).

Sounds like you will need to be dealing with a Body shop, no?

I don't think the coupe non-m's need to have the base plate modified, only the sedans.

Any bodyshop would have to problems doing such simple job as this, plus they'll have to paint them anyway so you'll kill 2 birds. That, unles you got Imola mirrors already.

You're right, for coupes its a direct fit.
