Now, look again at those mirrors in the first post and be honest. Can't you tell there is something really wrong with them aesthetically? Isn't it obvious that the darker part doesn't belong there (i.e. it is an add on)? Most probably just a form of camouflage? Can you really see that car on the streets like that?
This could be a result of all the complaining that people do over the fact that they feel the M3 must be more distinguished relative to the standard 3-series. It could lead to them over-designing things that just don't need it, ie: mirrors, boot lid/bumper license plate fiasco, and things of that nature. My opinion is that it isn't needed on these petty items.
