Check the paper envelopes that came with the mirrors, they might be in there

Double checked the box and no luck. Just the packing slip and order print out.

I got mine fitted few days ago but I'm quite dissapointed with the quality of the set. Out of the box it seems very nice but it wasn't.
Left side fitted perfect but once again not on the right side as you can see...






I think is just a cheap product for a car like M2.

Looks like installation error ... i would pop that cap off and try again really slowly and carefully. A few pages back there is mention of a small tab that fits into a slot along the base of the bezel. Make sure that goes in first.

Are you criticizing the quality of the materials or the fitment?

Both mirrors were fitted very carefully and one of them was nice. The other one you can see how it went.

Yeah, that doesn't look like it was properly installed. I don't think I have seen anyone else with a gap that large.

Just fitted mine, I can see how you can get gaps and fitment issues but if you persevere they fit very well. Mine are perfect fitment

Will upload pics later

How well does the black on the mirror unit match to the oem?

Did this get resolved Mike, anyone else have a similar issue on alignment here?

Thanks!

I havenít really messed with it since I installed them. I tucked the M2 back under the cover and once the weather warms up I plan on disassembling them and trying again to get everything aligned correctly.

The color matches perfectly to the OEM trim. The plastic feels a bit less substantial than OEM but color wise itís a match
