They look great. When half these opinionated people actually get their car they can decide what's good for them.

May be the European members. There is probably less than 100 M2 in the US right now.

I think the base and the mirror itself are too big. For example, M6 have a smaller mirror size; therefore, the base and the cap can be made smaller and more streamlined.

I don't know, there's something not quite right about the new treatment.

I like the view from the front. The lines go with the car, they shouldn't be an exact copy of the M4 mirrors anyway. That being said, I'm not sure I like the view from the drivers seat.

Could you please take a photo of the mirrors from the drivers point of view with the windows down, or from the outside?

I think they look great and fit the lines of the car well....I have the OEM shape Carbon mirrors and I think Ill be eventually switching to these...

Idk what the hate is all about...someone doesnt like them then I dont get the need to vocally shame you for them.....m3/m4 mirrors on the m2 is like blasphemy to some, a little psychotic to me...maybe they were molested by a M3 mirror as a child or something lol...

All that matters OP is you like them. That said, again, I think they look great compared to the boring stock mirrors

May be some increased wind noise, hard to tell without trying the old ones back on - but then it is a 5 minute job to swap them, so easy

The "wings" need to come off the mirror a little straighter. What makes them funny looking is the fact that they go up a little.
