However, if I'm getting mine in the summer time, I will go there myself or another friend will be going, therefore I can pick one up for you without extra charges. (BESIDE DUTIES IF APPLIED)
FTHM - Please e-mail or PM me. I am interested in getting the OEM ones from Japan. Please contact me so I can get prices and more info!!!

They had a million of these laying around...for all sorts of cars, E36, E46, sedan/coupe...

These are all made in INDO I think, but the quality is pretty good. =)
Where is this store at?! I am in LA too and want sedan M3 mirrors even if they ARE replica just as long as the normal power features work. Also how much were they?

So here they are buried under my junk itching to be installed. I got them for 300 painted. There was a scratch during shipping so I got them down to $250. I touched it up with some paint, not noticable from 1ft away.

Hmm, u use all the existing hardware, thats is why I have been hesitant to install it, I am not sure how long it will take =) So all the existing functions exist. I am not sure about the heat thing...Do 323i 2000's have headed stock mirrors?

I'll give the dude an email that ppl are interested, I am not sure if he wants me to give out his number...If you are interested in a set, send me an email at gsl@mit.edu and i'll fwd it to him. =)

SilverPuppy, do the M3 mirrors have more viewing area? One of the things I hate about the stock mirrors is they are too small and I'm sure the aerodynamics suck.

Mdk330i- The total area is probably about the same, the shape is different however. I think the M3 mirrors would give you better vision because its longer than stock, meaning your view angle is wider. I actually have a broadview addon for my main rearview mirror. I think its the best saftey item you can buy for $20. I can see all my blind spots(sedan only, cus b-pillar is so close), honestly I rarely use my side mirrors unless its for parallel parking.

hope this helps..
