Cheap eBay CF mirror caps?

Anyone buy anything like this? Obviously you get what you pay for but for 80 bucks, I'm wondering if it's worth rolling the dice.

Well for one, it's just a stick on cap and not an actual replacement.
Secondly, it is a crap shoot at the best of times but count on this....you won't be 100% satisfied. Usually finish is marred or the Carbon weave is off, and of course fitment tends to be off. That's just too low a price to get any form of quality. Better off using a really nice Carbon fiber vinyl wrap. You can get all types of finishes now from matte to high gloss and some of the tech art style vinyl is close to the real thing. Hope that helps a bit.

Why don't you check out my site.
I have a better version, which is full replacement, not just a stick on type.

I would buy from r33_RGSport as he's a trusted forum member.


DO NOT buy the cheap ones, they may look amazing in photos but they won't fit 100% right. The cheaper ones are made far too rigid and from low quality molds. I did the same mistake for an older vehicle and was never happy until I finally took them off.

Check out Autotecknic as another option.

Thank you for the mention.
I do carry AutoTecknic's product.
I know them very well and help them with some of the product development and QC.
Especially on the F15/F16 X5/X6 F85/F86 and now the G30 5 series.

You're kidding! That's awesome!

I have the AT front grill and CF caps and I can't tell you how much I love them. The quality is just superb.

Kudos to you, sir!
