Mirror Cap Options

I've been searching for gloss black caps... lots on eBay but quality is questionable. I'm relatively new to BMW aftermarket... what sites do you recommend?

Loving mine... gotta get to black out the grey accents and add a black spoiler

Wow that's so weird, I have the exact same build almost. And I've been looking for gloss black mirrors too. Best I've found was like $55 each primed and ready for paint from BMWPartsPros. Could get them painted at a body shop generic gloss black for I have no idea how much. IND quoted me $265 plus shipping, painted. I just don't see $155 to paint a set of mirrors. Anyway that picture gets me excited for my build.

BMW doesn't offer them in gloss back. They are primered, cost about $50 each, and for another $100 you can have them both painted gloss black or any color you want. Total cost is around $200 - quite a bit cheaper than the carbon fiber caps.

I agree with you somewhat... I'm not running around throwing M badges on the car. BMW already did that

Those don't seem half bad. I wonder how the finish is on them though...
