Yeah mine was funky when they ordered it. The build sheet I had when I ordered said black mirrors (so there was no error there). I also got the m sport steering wheel (that was also on order sheet option 710).

It's a unique car to say the least lol. I think with all of these things that are different than expected they should give me something for the mistakes???

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.
You can see it on the hood. And roof too. They are black.

I prefer body color mirrors so I'd leave it alone and try to get the dealer to throw in some free stuff for you.

At first I thought wtf, just random mistakes, then I saw the film on the hood and roof so I think the mirrors still have it too (although it doesn't look like it) , but if it is a mistake act like your disappointed and try to get carbon fiber ones. Either way they look good in white. Are you relly getting an M sport steering wheel on a sports line?! If so your a lucky dude. If this is the case it's weird they make these mistakes. I guess it's like any other profession...shit happens.

It looks too perfect for it to still have the wrap on...so I'm thinking its actually white. If it was wrapped it would not be perfectly cut around the turn light. I will leave it and try to get them to give me free stuff. Maybe winter floor mats and trunk liner. Nicer carpet mats too? Not sure if I even want the carbon fiber? Nothing else is carbon fiber.

It's the same here in the UK, black mirror caps are a free option on sports line, but you must specify it to get it.

The US should only get black mirrors with Sport Line. Looks great on Alpine White. Funny, I've gotten more questions and inquiries about my black mirrors than anything else on the car. They don't even notice it's a new model... but they notice the black mirrors. The 2nd most frequent inquiry are the black exhaust tips.

There is another thread about the steering wheel. I don't think it is a mistake that the OP got an M sport steering wheel, as it seems that all sport lines are now getting it instead of the sport line wheel with red stitching. I am not sure if this is a permanent change, but it seems to be.

Can someone confirm that the current sportline models come off the line with the M-sport wheel in the US? Do you have to ask for it/pay extra??

I doubt it. I recently tried to purchase one as a retro fit and BMW denied saying they would not guarantee/warranty it since it was a "non standard" part on a sportline vehicle.

Really ticks me off now that its part of a $1300. package on the 320i (entry level F30.

Picked it up...factory error so I got white covers. Will see what they say tomorrow about it when manager is in.

Starting to like it without black covers. I did get the m steering wheel (another error) that I am happy about

Will post pics later.

Same here. BSM sport line picking up 1/28. I'll post back here with an update. I hope they make the "same" mistake with my steering wheel.

The mirrors are one thing, but that ugly steering wheel should definitely be worthy of some sort of compensation.

The real shame is that this is a ZSL without 2TB. The mirror caps and wheel are cosmetic. Having a slow transmission isn't.

I have a AH3 coming in next week with some accidental options on it as well according to the paperwork. Let the car come in and I will confirm after looking at it first hand.

Count yourself lucky on the white mirrors. I hope this is a change for all new sport line cars like it is on the new 320i with Sport Pkg.

I think body colored mirrors are much more finished looking than black. Just look at a 911 or Ferrari. There mirrors are body colored as are other expensive cars.
