No black mirrors on sportline

So my ordered aw sportline came in and I am out of town. My CA sent me a pic and it doesn't have black mirrors, has aw covers? Has anyone experience this? Should I make a deal of it, could I get something for the mistake instead of them replacing mirrors?

No sure if its a big deal or not????

Some people prefer the body color, but AW looks pretty good with the black ones. I'd mention it and see what the salesperson says; at the very least they should offer to replace them with the right ones.

I'd be more concerned that they didn't order the line correctly...

If you want them, make a stink and get them. Not a hard fix for them.

I just ordered an M sport and was told that I cannot get black mirrors on it. However, i was told at an earlier date that the sportline can have black mirrors. Makes no sense to me, the mirrors are not affected by line choice.

But whatever. If you really want black mirror caps, get aftermarket ones or vinyl wrap them or as BMW parts to order 2 black mirror caps and have them change em for you.

M-Sport doesn't have black mirrors on any color combo. The sportline does. You should get what you want. Hopefully its the right line.

It's a sportline, has everything else from what I can tell. Just mirrors are body color. Strange...not sure if I want them to change or not? Maybe they will give me carbon fiber for the mistake...there's hoping lol. Will post pic, only on iPad now fly back home.

If not I will settle for a few sets and trunk liner. We will see.

Here's the picture, will hopefully get more details later. Will talk about it on delivery. Not sure what I want to do or if I like the white or black covers better.

Personally, I prefer the body-colored mirrors. I remember a time in the not so distant past where that was always a distinction between many base model vehicles and the higher trim levels...black or unpainted plastic mirrors on the base, and match-painted on the higher models.

Looks like a sportline for sure - someone had too many beers on the factory line!

Wait, the car hasn't been PDI'd yet. It still has the poly paint protection. I'll bet the mirrors have the poly on them and ARE actually black...



If not, the caps just pop off. Have them order the correct black caps and throw them in the trunk. Then you'll have the option to switch back and forth as you wish.

What the heck is going on? First we have Sport Lines coming with the M-Sport steering wheel, and now body colored mirror caps instead of black. I know people swear by the M-Sport steering wheel, but if I don't get what I ordered I will not be happy.

I like them in black but again; it all comes down to your personal preference.

Somehow, the bozo who ordered your car at the dealer managed to DELETE 3BE Spiegelklappen Schwartz (black mirror covers) which are part of the ZSL Sport package.

In the photo, the rest of the car looks like a US-spec ZSL, but I'd make sure the B-pillar trim was high-gloss black.

You can a) have a very unique US-spec ZSL car or b) make the dealer make it up to you with a pair of the very sexy carbon fiber covers that are an available accessory.

Two little words: equipment subject to change **without notice**. Personally I would count myself lucky -- the black mirrors to me look cheap compared to body color, and if I liked black, I would consider the change an easy one to accomplish with paint or carbon fiber. Much easier than the other way round.
