CF mirror caps (not overlays) - What are the options?

Although many might recall I've done my share of ranting about the use of Carbon Fiber for cosmetic purposes. However, I really like the matching look between the CF mirror covers and the OEM roof. Can someone who has looked into all of the options make some recommendations?

-I want full cover replacements not overlays
-I want the CF to match the OEM roof
-(Obviously) I want real CF with a good UV protectant for longevity
-Fitment should be OEM quality

The option from Eurosport looks great. Here.

Anyone know of other options?

I got mine from EAS and they would match the OEM CF roof. I obviously got new CF V-Weave so I have to sell my CF mirrors. PM me offer as I have not listed them yet.

You need a set of mirror shell replacements which we do carry in the 1x1 CF Weave to match your roof.

The OEM mirror caps, even though they have a perfect, flawless weave, doesn't match the CF of the roof. The weave is larger and closer to 2x2 twill size.
