E92 vs. E93 side mirrors

Are they interchangeable? Please don't reply with an opinion or a simple "yes" or "no". I'd like to know for sure and based on facts.

I would love to find an E93 owner who would want to trade my gloss black ones for their matte black ones! Definitely reply if you fit that bill.

How about pricing for the E93 units as well, anyone know that?

They are interchangeable as they both use the same base. Its the 2dr(e92/e93) windows shape that use the same base and the 4dr(e90/e91) that use their own. Are you looking at buying a new set or possibly swapping?

oh thats right..in the US you get high gloss finish standard. FYI, there are coupes in Canada that don't have the high gloss and they have matte black!

You can see the part numbers here

US cars get High Gloss Shadow line. You'd want basic. Not sure if E93 get flat black of high gloss, but it's not an issue for you.
