Question PYSpeed Autotechnic CF M3 Mirror Cover Fitment?

Anyone use the CF Full Replacement M3 Mirror Covers by AutoTechnic from PYSpeed?

How's the fitment?

Was going to pick up a set of OEM covers, but with the sale going on at PYSpeed - the Autotechnic covers are $170 cheaper...

And I know most would say got with OEM, & 'you get what you pay for' (which I normally subscribe to) but if these have good fitment, I could use the $$ saved on other parts

Just remember they don't take returns or exchanges

I had the autotechnik replacements originally and they eventually had horrible UV spots/blotches. I sucked it up and bought the OEM performance ones after a few months of the spots annoying me. I even switched back to stock before buying the OEMs.

Well, it turns out, after talking to my wife - she had already ordered me a set of the OEM covers as a surprise - now that's a great wife

Told me I was too impatient - so I cancelled the PYSpeed order...

Guess I'm getting the OEM's after all

On another note, I have purchased other CF items from PYSpeed that were totally fine and still installed after years - so maybe Jbook just got a bad set?

Great wife you have there! I didn't order mine through pyspeed, but several vendors use autotechnik or whatever that brand is called. There is a very noticeable difference in quality between oem and those when just holding them each.
