Anyone know of a bodyshop...
 
Around LA that would be able to retrofit my oem m3 mirrors onto my preface sedan? Let me know ! They are already painted in my car color (oem paint)
Thanks in advance

Anyone ?

Man that's going to be a nightmare job. You'll probably end up fabricating new mounts with fiberglass.

Dippinwandy 01-21-2013 11:34 PM

I heard its not too bad... I dont think there is any fiberglass involved? Just that i want yo save the paint since its oem paint.

Hardly a nightmare job and it has absolutely nothing to do with new mounts or fiberglass.

This does not cover the required modifications to the door itself, to mount these mirrors.

Go on...lol

That's because the majority of the work is on the mirror bases, not on the door. Again, if you're doing anything with fiberglass, you're doing it wrong.

"Go on...lol"

MCM97 01-22-2013 12:41 PM

and the mirror bases are what material?

I looked through that many times but i cant pull the trigger to do the diy mainly because of the paint. I feel that if i do it myself the paint on the mirrors will crack and peel.. So maybe a bodyshop can save the paint..?

Nothing that requires fabrication.

If you feel you can handle the trimming process, just take it to a shop for paint once you've modified and done test fitting.

MCM97 01-22-2013 06:45 PM

ok you guys have quite the sense of humor here! So it seems like the job isnt exactly plug and play and does take some fabrication...yes?

Dippinwandy 02-09-2013 01:39 PM

Or does anyone have experience with this ? I will pay $$$$ for someone to do it for me ? Im not up for the challenge.
