Help...Mirror

What is the best way to go with, regarding side mirrors?
Thinking of doin m5 scheme paint on stock ones but kind of getting pulled to getting carbon mirror cover/caps. But then the covers by bmw performance is pricey, and was wondering who/where sells cheaper solution? Not covers like just sticking it with 3m tape, looking for real replacement carbon mirror covers.
Would also like comments on paint scheme.

Thanks in advance!

Just go with the OEM performance ones. Yes, they are pricey but the quality is superb.

I have OEM covers painted black and love them. BMW carbon mirrors look great too. I might have gone that direction if I had a carbon roof to match.
