You are right, how rude of me



M2 Mirrors


Disclaimer: Nothing beats pure ///M mirrors. Until the time comes when a true M3/M4 retrofit is released with a 'reasonable' price tag, I'll stick to mirror caps for now.


A few months back I went totally OCD over the various mirror cap offerings. It turns out, not all caps are the same. Some are cheap and nasty, others have a little more 'refinement' in their shape which makes a big difference.

There's a guy on the German 2 series forum who is selling "///M mirror caps" - there's a thread about it on here by Robban.

The mirrors caps I purchased were from a company called 'CarbonCustomzUK'. My set was professionally skinned by hand in a real carbon fibre 3k weave cloth and finished with a deep, glossy UV resistant coating.





This is their ebay store:
http://stores.ebay.co.uk/mhautopaint - At the moment is empty ... I think they may be away on vacation, so worth checking a few weeks later.

Alternatively here is Robban's post on a good set of mirror caps:

Oh and a big tip: no need to take the mirror out, just pry an interior trim (non-scratch) tool around the edges of the stock cap, it'll come out very easily.

Purchase a nice set from Amazon... a torx set is always handy to have in the toolbox
