Are the covers the OEM BMW Performance CF covers or reps?

Purchased from Germany from a LHD vehicle. and both mirrors are identical (no magnification) so can be used on both RHD & LHD but thanks for your input (mirrors glasses are cheap anyhow)
Yes, the blue non-auto dim glass such as you have IS cheap, however, the auto-dim glass is not...

Funny though that the glass is not aspheric, which is normal for Euro cars

I'm gonna guess that your mirrors are non-auto dim, as that is what you have installed, & the connectors are different between the two. Non-auto uses (2) small spade connectors on wiring harness for the heating elements only, while the auto-dim glass has a special connector that incorporates heat & auto dim circuits. One won't connect to the other unless you have cut off the connector and replaced.

These are the basic/base, matte black housing version with no options other than heat - which BTW, one side is on indefintite backorder @ BMW, with no details if it will ever be available. For that reason, when I just recently ordered my M3 mirrors I went with gloss black.

So if you need matte black mirrors these are for you - you can still get matte in the more expensive/optioned mirrors, but cost would be higher...

Cheapest I found these mirrors new is from Tischer @ $785 (with promo discount & free shipping) for the pair including blue glass. That price does not include covers - I picked up a set of the Performance CF covers for another $500 from STBMW
