I was scared too, but....

Just nut up, and....

PULL.

If I get home before koxal puts photos up, then I'll put some up as well, I have mine lying around in my garage.

BTW, want to sell your OE's to me koxal? I'm looking for jet black mirror caps, wanna take off my CF ones.

Nope everything is perfect...I just popped them off to practice and put em right back...I am going to have them painted Jet Black when I am in Greece so they are done when I get back and I don't have to drive with plastic bags over my mirrors lmao
