the m3 mirror looks very nice on stock or heavily modded car imo, but if i have 1500 i would get something else that i want more on my list. but since its your money and maybe m3 mirror is on the top of your wanted mod list, do it!!

Since you are buying oem piece so the resale value will not drop as much like replicas.

Anyway, thanks for convincing me this is a waste of money guys.

Just went out and spent $800 on a new set of Ping Irons and a new bag.
A penny saved is a penny earned.. ha. Get out of my ear with that noise.

The Ping irons are pretty slick, which did you get?

Maybe its time for me to get some irons as well.

i also think 1500 is insane for a set of mirrors, but an item is only worth what the buyer is willing to pay. i think $70 is not worth spending on painted grilles or reflectors but there are a lot of people that apparently think those items are worth it. to each their own. their money to spend, not mine.

At least they're forged replicas... you should spend your money on whatever makes you happy.

Hmmm, I have never heard this wheel referred to as a replica.

A replica of what? The CSL style?

Maybe.

I would say this wheel deserves it's own style though.
