There are quite a few of us in the same boat and as far as I've seen there haven't been any options other than the ones from BMW. I know Adamaster came out with some, but I guess they didn't quite fit. I believe he is redoing the mold, so hopefully we'll see some from him that fit in the near future.

I just wish I bought them from Dan@unitedbmw when he had them for $340.

I personally want "clip on" Cf mirror caps that replicate the bmw performance ones.. I know a few vendors have the "stick on's" and honestly that wont do it for me in terms of look and fit....if anyone discovers an option that is simliar to the BMW ones please let me know..

i gues there is no one that sells carbon fiber mirror covers. i guess it's going to take a while for vendors to notice how much money they can make off of this..!!!!!

There's a group buy going over in Germany right now.

I posted info on Babybmw with pictures and there is a link that goes to the GB on 1erforum.de from there

http://babybmw.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=14741

If interested you can send a mail which there is a link above where you can enquire about delivery. You may even get it at a tax free price if outside EU if you ask?
