These stick on are hideous but saved me a few times. Wondering if I can buy something more flat that doesn't stick out.

Just order from ebay:
Part numbers:
51 16 7 291 247
51 16 7 291 248

they are euro spec mirrors that COMPLETELY eliminate blind spots - they have wide angle and IMHO this is how x5 should have come from factory

Change is very easy - just pop out and pop in - takes 5 min

I'll update what I find, but yours look good - just make sure it's a wide angle like in euro (not US spec)

Try Parkview BMW, they can order OEM, aspheric mirrors. You are correct ensure auto dimming and heated meets your needs. There is a thread on these mirrors. If I recall cost was reasonable. In the past these were not available in the US.

Thanks bud. I ended up finding a used pair on eBay that are coming from Germany for a great price. So I will see how that goes once they are delivered. Do u know how much parkview was asking for a pair?

Do the German set fit a 2015? The site says it fits 2013 and 2014 with no mention of 2015. Thanks.

Now I know it's silly, but knowing our US insurance - I hope this kind of mirrors won't be a reason to deny claim in case of any accident? It's just bureaucracy is strong and amount of BS I see everywhere in everyday life - starting from dealerships denying warranty for any cause they can get hold of - I'm just hoping this is not going to be an issue lol

Haha your insurance company would have no idea what mirror glass is supposed to Come on your car. I wouldn't worry. Besides it's an added safety feature of nothing else.
