M3 mirror on Mtech body?

Does anyone have pictures of M3 mirrors on a ZHP or a non M with the Mtech kit? Thinking about getting some but haven't completely decided yet.

My Ride: ///M3 & 330i ZHP
I say doooeeeeiiiittttt

Be sure to get the OEM M3 side mirrors though. Don't get the rep M3 mirrors...they are not the same.

On your coupe, the baseplate for the OEM M3 side mirrors should be direct plug and play. No modificaitons that I know of. For sedans you have to modify the baseplate in order for them to fit. Here is a pic of a ZHP with OEM M3 side mirrors but it's a sedan ZHP



Car on the left has OEM M3 side mirrors. My ZHP is the one at the right next to the older 6-series bimmer. I'm in the process of getting my OEM M3 side mirrors modified (baseplate) so that it can mount onto my ZHP.

The M3 rep mirrors look like this. I had them on my '99 323i. Thought they would look okay but in the end I really did not like them....too big imho.


Hope this helps

the replicas made in asia are all of the M5 design. there were one or two replicas of M3s but haven't seen around in a while, plus the price wasn't that good.

the replicas are CRAP

Does anyone make sedan m3 mirrors that don't suck? I want them badly, but haven't found good ones that aren't huge. I guess there are always ACS mirrors.
