F22 Colour Code Mirror Caps

Post by al00000 »

Hi,

I have an M235i in mineral white, and I really do not like the standard grey mirror caps / covers.

Where's the best place to get some good colour-coded replacements?

Thanks,
Al.

I removed mine and had them blown over by a local body shop.

Mineral white is a rare colour, wonderful, but rare. I'd be surprised if you find a used set on eBay.

Thanks for the feedback.

I did think to get mine sprayed but thought the local paint shop would want too much for it to be economical.

There's a guy in Germany selling some genuine caps on eBay. I may give it a punt.

Thanks, again.

Fingers crossed that eBay.de auction works out for you.

If not, you could chat up your local BMW bodyshop? They will have Mineal White in a spray gun anyway occasionally, they might welcome a quick private job for £50 cash?

Ordered Sunday, arrived Wednesday (from Germany).
Mineral white, genuine BMW, well packed, perfect condition.
£135 delivered.
All that can go wrong now, is my ability to fit them.

These are the carbon fibre replacements from AutoID UK

See https://autoid.co/collections/bmw?_=pf& ... e_make=BMW

They also do gloss black and body colour: https://autoid.co/collections/bmw/produ ... irror-unit

looks like the current price is around £200 the pair. I fitted mine around 2017 and they've stood up well so far. Personally, I think body colour would have looked as good, but at the time, they didn't do it.
