I don't know who the original manufacturer is, but I got my CF mirror caps from JLevi. They've been on for a year and a half now (daily driver) and they look just as great as when I first put them on. No yellowing/fading, no problems whatsoever.

In comparison, I bought my spoiler from ****** and it yellowed badly within a year, bought my hood from Seibon and it yellowed in a few months (though they replaced it because it shouldn't have), bought CF roundel stickers and they faded. CF eyelids from China are doing okay though. Go figure.

But the CF from JLevi is good quality, at least for the mirrors. I can attest to that myself.

Keep an eye out in the for-sale section... every CF part I have on my car was used and I paid about half for everything.

Unfortunately, we only have them available for non-LCI E82 models only at the moment, 2007-2009.

Try here:

http://www.europeanautosource.com/pr...0-e82-1-series

Cheapest place I know of that sells the 2010+ mirror caps ($570, versus 320 EACH from BMW). You might want to try to talk to EAS here on the forum (just send a PM) because I find that if you contact vendors and buy through here, you tend to get better prices than on their websites. For many vendors, but not all.
