While I can appreciate someone modding the folding M3 mirrors, I just don't think they go as well as the rectangles, but thats just my opinion...

Love the exhaust, I can't wait to do something with mine...
That's the beauty of modding. There are some who prefer the rectangle "Flag-type" mirrors and others who are looking for something different. I kept with BMW styling because I happen to like it so going with the OEM M3 side mirrors seemed the right thing to do. These mirrors add a more aggressive and sporty look to my ZHP and I'm glad I went this route.

When looking at the M3 "reps" I am the first to say that those mirrors do not go with the 3-series lines but the OEM M3 mirrors however are perfect for the 3-series lines. Afterall... they came with the E46 ///M. As for me, I would have these any day over the more boring rectangle "flag-style" sedan mirrors...

@ Marcus, there's nothing crazy about liking the OE Flag-style mirrors. For some this is the perfect setup. Your Imola ZHP looks clean and I can respect you for wanting to keep it that way. The CSL reps didn't come with the ZHP but they do look great on your car! In fact, I'm thinking of doing the same exact thing but keeping to 18" diameter...
