When you receive these mirror caps, will you please post a pic? I'd like to see how they look IRL compared to the ones I bought.

I really don't want to take them off. Sorry man. If you look at the pictures in the Aliexpress listing you can see the tabs.


Hi. I just got delivery of my mirror caps. Can you advise how you fitted them on? Did you remove the mirror first or did you just swap out the caps?

Yeah, you have to remove the mirrors first. There's videos on youtube that show how it's done on other models of BMW. Then I just got a small trim tool and worked it along the mirror cap. I believe I started on the side closest to the car and worked toward the outside. Just go slow and you should be fine.

Thank you.
Has anyone decided to spray the m style mirror caps in the same colour as the car? I'd love to see how it would look in Alpine White
