Carbon wing mirrors?

Seeing as someone has very kindly clipped one of my wing mirrors I thought I'd see what alternatives are out there, other than 300+ for the BMW Performance ones

Can anyone tell me if these are direct replacements for the painted part of the wing mirror or just stick on covers?

If they are direct replacement parts what is the fit and finish like?

Thanks

Thanks for that, I've got a crack in the painted part so really want to replace it rather than just cover it.

Is there anyone that does a cf version?

OP said they're cracked, so wrapping with film wouldn't really work would it..?

Do the stick on covers sit proud of the mirror or still pretty much inline?
