Got these today. OEM carbon fiber mirror cap replacements

Picked these up at my local dealer after special ordering direct from Germany. Quality is supurb! Some here say that these don't match the cf roof. I think it goes well with it and perfectly matches my front OEM splitters and perfermance decklid cf spoiler. I recommend these to anyone thinking of getting the OEM cf mirror caps if you're willing to pay the cost of the OEM premium price. Will be putting these on tonight!

Sorry I put them on already. Very easy took less than 10 minutes. Followed this guide: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=491799
I didn't need any tools just used my fingers.

So where are the pics?
Can you please take a close up of the gaps around the contour. I know oem mirror covers have a slight gap and I bought the cf replacements and they seem to have a slight larger gap. Just want to compare.
Thanks.

Gotta love OEM quality... My CF mirrors (non-oem) are one of my favorite cosmetic mods!!

Just ordered these and they should arrive in the next couple days. I checked out that install thread and I'm debating whether to do the install with or without taking off the mirror glass. Thoughts?

No need to take of the mirror. Honestly once you get the covers slightly loose and are able to pry your fingers in a bit, they just pop right off. Like Daft said, took him less than 10 mins.

Cool. FedEx just delivered them a few minutes ago. Should be a quick install.
