After a research and found a great price of totally new mirrors I have installed one of the big esthetic upgrade for the M2!

Also my wife said... "Did you change the car? Seems different in something...." " no it is your impression I just changed the mirror cover"

I have posted many pictures of the comparison but believe me that in the reality these mirrors are unbelievable! The blinker is painted and refinished with laser technology in order to have the small precision stripes...

Sorry for slow reply.
I have ordered from ************************
Talk with Uwe he is fast and very serious!

Pricing without painting little bit more than 1050 euro.

About parts number I don't want to put parts because mine is lhd and rhd is totally different.

Please consider that only driver mirror is dimmed. But this is from more than 1 year...I try my best to have 2 dimmed but I got only the glass and the whole mirror don't have wiring

Seems a different car. In my priority I delayed all the carbon wing to have the M mirrors and believe me that is much better than many other parts more expensive in the final result!

All the parts are different from the normal mirror. About carbon sure is not a big different about money but I prefer the painted cover because I like the contrast between white and black! If you consider painting the extra cost is about 70/80 euro each...

It's a great price considering we were seeing manual folding ones for $1600+ in some other threads just a few months back.

Don't believe they offer paint, that's something you'd have to source yourself once you have them in your possession. Wouldn't be difficult though, any local body shop could paint them for you. You wouldn't even have to give them the car, just provide one of the old mirror caps as a paint sample.

I suggest to buy not dimmed mirror on the right because you could not connect the dimming!

I got both pieces of glass dimmed and heated even though only the driver side will dim. If you buy one side undimmed the mirror glass on that side will be much thinner and the color is a tiny bit different as well. I'd rather they match perfectly. Call it OCD

Why not just go OEM carbon fiber caps and save yourself the trouble of a perfect paint match..

Deep down, you know that's where you're eventually headed anyways

I'm really not a fan of the way carbon fiber looks against a black car, so in my case the painted caps were a very specific choice. No exterior carbon for me at all, almost everything on my car is paint matched: Mperf spoiler, calipers, badges, grills. You name it, it's black. I'm fine with the dry carbon on the interior, but exterior cf is a no go for me. I know some people love it but I'm weird I guess 🤷🏻

Do you mind sharing the contact info?
I would like to have the same guy to help me with the order since he will be familiar with the parts already.
TIA!

The gloss black or BSM caps also looks classy..

I just hate dealing with bodyshops, so I use the carbon fiber darkish color nature in accessory parts, so they blend in with my black color vehicle. That way I don't have to paint it. This more so than my need for carbon..

But if you have someone that does impeccable painting, black is definitely acceptable..

Black's one flaw is it doesn't stand out with carbon fiber pieces, I actually like that look.. Saves me the trouble..

I guess everybody's is weird in their own way..
