Thanks,
I got them from Bimmian.com, $302 I think. And they are Carbon Fiber Mirrors. You will need to take off the old stock, take out the guts and put into new CF mirrors. First one took a while, 2nd mirror only took me like ten minutes to install. Pretty easy, no need to take off the door panel, just the triangle cover, you now have access.

It is 20%. I was going to do 35, but when the top is down and I am on the highway with the windows up - it was going to be very light. Now it blocks alot of the sun which is good as my car/windows were very hot before tint and I spend most of my day in the car at client meetings. Now when I get back in the car, it is much cooler
