Of course this could just be on my set/install, as I haven't seen others close up - perhaps more fidgeting with them could get them to line up a bit better, driver's side seems a bit better, but still not 100% perfect. But to be honest, unless you want to spend $2,500 for the M2C mirrors then these are the next best thing and only a couple of hundred dollars. Cost/benefit, these (IMO) are the best bang for the buck...I mean let's face it, we're not curing cancer here...they're just mirrors people.
looks fine to me

I don't get the pricing model on their page. Painted caps cost 255GBP and the whole unit costs 250GBP..

Now, It's not my area of expertise in any way but I would have guessed that the caps only would have been cheaper than the whole unit...

I don't see the painted caps for 255GBP you're referring to. If you're talking about this for 240GBP or this for 260GBP, they're the carbon fiber variants for the OEM mirrors.

They are the ones called "AUTOID Painted Performance Wing Mirror Covers for BMW (Various Models)
1 review
from £209.95" in the parts list.

If you click on them to see the product specific page it says they cost "254.95" something. I rounded it to 255..

Those are not the same mirror caps as the ones offered in the bundle with the housing. They are the mirror caps for OEM mirrors but altered to have the M look.

I do get what you're saying though.

Yeah, I actually think we're on the same page about the differences between the two products.. One would think that the product that contains more hardware would be more expensive than "just" the caps which are just painted plastic...

Anyway, the reason I thought about this was that would be satisfied with just the caps which is an easier installation but if they are more expensive than the newer, more m like product then I'd might as well buy that.

Recently got my replacement caps in the mail after breaking the bottom tabs on the first set. Only time and money, lol What can you do?

Anyways I reinstalled everything today and fitment is 99% and I'm happy with how they came out. They aren't perfect but they're very close to it and for the price and design I think it's a fantastic alternative to spending $2000 on M2C mirrors.

I haven't test driven the car yet to see if they whistle but I will do that tmrw assuming the weather is decent.

This was the reinstallation order of everything that worked best for me:

Bottom piece

Clear indicator

Front screw

The large mirror housing piece

Middle bottom black screw

Outer bottom black screw

The other 3 silver screws in any order

Caps

Mirror Motor

Glass

Hey guys.

Thrilled to say our first batch of carbon fibre is scheduled to ship Monday. Well have another batch following the week and from then onwards we will be all caught up with demand.

Thank you for all the feedback so far, its been invaluable in the development of the pre-preg carbon versions.

AutoID is going to offer the tints for the mirror turn signals soon according to their IG story! Exciting news for those that purchased the older mirror covers and the first batch of the new whole mirror units

These are fantastic looking and definitely put the made-in-China knockoff covers I've had on my car to shame.

Where do you think the retailer gets these from..

They just do minor "quality" inspections, slap their name on it and resell them at a higher price..
