Exclamation E90 carbon mirrors

I have an e90 and the carbon fiber mirror caps I got for it along time ago fit like crap and are starting to yellow and fall apart, it looks terrible... I have been looking but cannot find an actual carbon mirror replacement instead of these crappy stick on ones. Is there any companies that make an actual carbon fiber mirror I can replace my stock ones with? thanks

Tischer has the OEM Performance replacements, but they're $530 for the set!!!!!!!!

Been looking for something affordable too, but the stick-ons just don't seem right.

Tax refund much?

I have the stick on REAL carbon fiber ones here. If you install them right they look pretty damn perfect. Significantly cheaper than the replacements and its not like you are doing this to save wait. Just take time and do the install right and it will be good.

Where'd you get yours from? I've been considering a set for a while but wasn't too sure about the longevity of the adhesive... thx!
