hi
took the bits to a friend of mine that works in a high end paint garage in Park Royal London
he used some sort of flat zigzag piece of steel that that is actually pushed in the plastic with heat inside where the screw pushes up to reinforce the all piece
he said to me they used them a lot to fix cracked bumpers
put them back last year with same screw and no crack ever since

Mirror cracks

Have found the same cracks on both sides... A bit late for a warranty claim though.

My first post on this great forum! So much knowledge. Will tell about the car somewhere in the near future.

Uh oh. I'll check my tonight when I get home. If it's a torque issue on the retaining screws, then simply backing them out a half turn or so would sufficiently reduce the pressure on the part and eliminate FUTURE cracks, or widening of the current cracks.

Rekraps reporting back in. I inspected my latest VO and there is not a crack visible. I am lucky.

I checked my 1M and both sides are cracked. From www.realoem.com it doesn't look like BMW sells that little plastic wing piece by itself
