Good luck to ya with all the aftermarket 'replica' M3 mirrors

They all require that you cannibolize the OEM mirror motors from your original mirrors and cut/splice the wiring back together to use in the new mirrors.

If that's what has to be done to save some $$ over OEM - then I'm not having any of it, and I'll stick with the mirrors that came on my car - or wait till a used set of OEM M3 mirrors come up for sale on the forum.

These asian companies treat aftermarket BMW parts as if you were working on a Honda Accord...

The way I look at it is this: a mirror housing can very easily be replicated by an asian company, they can simply make a mold from the original that should be identical, so that's why I chose to buy the repica housing, because OEM cost around $2,000 and it's just a mirror housing, it's not a complex component here, as far as the assembly is concerned; I'm paying a professional body shop to do that for me so that is not a concern...
