White Mirrors & White Varrstoens? Yes or No?

What do u guys think? I had always thought about doing it, and after seeing a few cars at Bimmerfest with it I thought I'd give it a try...I'm not sure if I'm liking it, maybe if they were M3 mirrors? Its only plastidip so I can peel it off.

Paint mirror covers silver to match the car and leave mirror base black.

I agree with everyone else! Wheels yes, mirrors definitely not. Also, don't copy anything that you've seen at Bimmerfest. I went to Bimmerfest and I saw soooooooooo many cars that all look exactly the same. So many of them had the damn BBS LM's or a replica(like Varrstoen etc.) that I got sick of the wheel. All the cars look exactly the same. I no longer want the LM's. I'll stick to my V710's. Also, I do have to say do what makes you happy, even if it's white wheels

I like it. It's unique. I am thinking about painting my calipers red and mirrors as well (not sure they have red plasti dip, but i might spray them white plasti dip first and coat with red over so it still peels off.

I would like to see a white roof too but not sure how that would look. Thumbs up from me on the white mirrors though!

I like the white mirrors over the black mirrors but I think silver would be the best for sure

Kinda like the white mirrors. Just sucks they're ugly stock ones. Kinda makes it look like it needs more white tho. More the. Just the wheels. I dunno.
But I like how it looks tho.

Not to hate, but I don't like either of those on a silver car. On a different color, I could see it maybe working, but white/silver just isn't working for me. My $0.02.

I love the rims keep the mirrors black or silver. Another suggestion, I think your car would look a lot better with clears. It would bring out the white in the rims.

Oh and where did you get the white plastidip? I was wanting to play around with it on my car.
