thanks for the ideas guys, all suggestions are good. I think M3 is deffo the way forward. Which particular replicas are in that pic alex? they look sh1t compared to OEM, almost as elephant'ish as the the ones i have on now.

would E36 M3 mirrors go onto an E46? or are the base plates totally diff? There are a few of these on ebay going cheap, and they still look good for their age.

btw Bigfas, v nice car you got there :o

replica m3 mirrors.... while i kinda wish i had have saved up for oems, i really don't think these look THAT bad and are definitely a good alternitive. That being said, I'm probably going to switch over to oem after getting doen with a few other things currently sitting under my bed
