Yeah, I'll be looking closely for the same thing. I will also try to use the stock foam pads, but cutting them is inevitable. If I donŽt use the stock foams IŽll add a good amount of standard window foam seal to get a tight all-around seal.

Yesterday I bought M6 hex bolts that have a 10mm hex head and bought them in two lengths, 30mm and 40mm. I will also use pressure washers and Lock-tite on the threads to get a firm hold of those mirrors. In our favor the M3 Mirrors are lighter and more aerodynamic than the stocks ones, that should help against wind noise and shaking.


No, no, there is no climate change, it just getting hotter and hotter....and hotter. Yeah, right!?!!?
