Exclamation FS: OEM Euro Side Mirrors - Aspheric (Wide Angle), Heated & Auto Dimming

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
SOLD!

If your not familiar with these you are in for a treat. This is the iPad of mods. You never knew that you needed these until you actually have them.

Aspheric (Wide Angle) - virtually eliminate the blind spots and no "OBJECTS IN MIRROR ARE CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR" text on the passenger mirror.

The problem is that they are very hard to get. They are black listed with BMWNA. You couldn't even order them if you wanted to. Not mention they retail for $370 each + Tax even if you could buy them.

I have used EURO mirrors on all of my M3's over the years and can't imagine looking in the mirror without them. Because they cover a wider angle, lane changes are totally effortless & safe now.

I have two pairs for sale. They are not cheap, heated & auto-dimming tech is expensive but they are less than half the price of new if you could get them.

I am selling each pair for $435 shipped via FedEx Insured or $410 Local Pickup.

Link to the DIY Install .

BMW Part #'s LT 51168041951 & RT 51168041952.

Such a great deal and such a great mod.... but $410 is still steep for Euro mirrors..... Very tempting!

Just installed mine this evening. Took less than 5 minutes to install both with just a small screwdriver to separate the connector. These might be the best "safety" mod I have ever done. It was dark, but I took the car out and there is absolutely ZERO blind spot. Very cool! The "distortion" of the image will take a little getting used to, but shouldn't be a problem. I'm curious to see if the vertical line is a designated area that helps you determine when you could change lanes and not run into the car beside you. Dimmer worked perfectly. Awesome seller. Really, who could ask for anything more? Thanks Terry!!!

The vertical ----- Line is mark where the mirror physically curls outward to eliminate additional blind spots. If your looking at the drivers side mirror, to the right it is wide angle but perfectly flat, to the left of the line it curls out slightly to provide a broader range of vision.

I still look over my should out of habit but the mirror really does pickup everything. Should have came this way from the factory....Damn D.O.T.!!

I am in Germany with the military and can go to the dealer here to order these if anyone else wants to get there hands on a set of the mirrors.

I would just ask for the exact cost of the mirrors + shipping and a small fee for my time. Nothing to make money, just an offer to help out if someone wants the mirrors.

If there is any interest I can go to the dealer next to my house and find out how much they cost.

to the OP:

The Aspheric Mirrors (in your original post) look like they capture more view behind the car even before the blind spot dotted line. Is this true? If so, wouldn't the objects look smaller in the mirror?

objects will look slightly thinner and show your blind spots.
