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.

I hardly use the mirrors anyways.


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.

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.

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.

Rob, I personally love the mirrors, painting them I think completes the look of the original DTM cars. Does seem strange to paint CF vs fibreglass ones, but it's your money. Since you bought the vented ones ( I would have gone to the earlier none vented ones), makes sense to use them, but in the originals, the intent was to remove the tweeter and have the air flow come right into the cabin for air flow during racing.

On the sticker issue, I would either put the Motorsport colours on the car, and start tracking it, no one likes a poser. Or take the stickers off and just enjoy your car any day you want, and keep it mint, as it is a classic.
My 2 cents
Mark

The mirrors went back to the paintshop today to get it vented and touched up as well.
I will post pics of the finished product sometime this week.

rob..i was thinkin from wat addbhp was jus thinkin....having a racing sticker on ur car...let alone the motorsport colours on ur car will jus get negative feedback from cops...u will be suspected of racing..and wreckless driving..i say take even the dekra sticker off and keep it clean man...but leave the raceworld, and sic ryde stickers..they look kool on there....the dekra sticker looks a bit outta place by itself..
