Carbon Fiber Mirror Covers on Platinum Bronze

I recently damaged my driver side view mirror cover and need to get it replaced. I'm thinking about taking this time to upgrade my covers to carbon fiber because it won't be much more expensive than getting the regular replacement cover and having it painted.

Do you think the carbon fiber covers would look good on Platinum Bronze? Does anyone have a picture of this? Thanks.

You might have to be the first, you don't see many of the Platinum Bronze on here let alone ones with mods on them. Maybe someone on here could photoshop it for you

Full replacement. Getting them both for $225 including shipping from another user on this forum. Went through with this purchase because the stock replacement was going to cost around $175 (part + paint job) so I spent the extra $50 for the carbon fibers. Will post pics when I install them next week.
