M3 GT4 Mirror's

So I was viewing some images of the GT4 and noticed that the mirrors are very similar if not exact copies of the e36 mirrors. I know that some of our friends on the other side of the pond (lukester for example) run e36 mirrors due to the consumable cost of replacing e9X mirrors when they get damaged during racing conditions at The Ring. I like the slender look they give off and unfortunately I need to replace one of my mirrors so this may be a good option.

Used E36 mirrors would be cheap, or these from Turner: http://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-16...-3-series.aspx

I tried fitting e36 M3 mirrors. The base is too small. I believe they are e36 Mirrors with e92 specific base plates.

Only place I've seen them is motorsport24.de, and possibly Alpha N performance.

Are these using more sophisticated optics to ensure you don't have ridiculous blindspots? Obviously the use case for street driving versus the track is quite different.

They look like they are convex glass.
