A familiar face!

Bought an X5 and rejected pronto after literally the most shambic experience you could imagine.

"So you want your X5 painted in 4 different shades of Alpine White, no problem sir we have just the car for you!"

Awful.

I hope you are getting the 0% deal?

Quick update again...

M3 mirrors now fitted and sorted.

Opted to get the mirror covers colour coded in body colour for a more OEM+ look.

Also got the added bonus of having both passenger & driver mirrors autodimming, since my M3 mirrors were obviously from before BMW got tight and only fitted the drivers side with the electrochrome glass!

My car being a 2016 build was sadly only equipped with one auto dimming mirror glass from the factory, but the good news was that the wiring is present in the door, so it was plug and play once the M3 mirrors were on!

Pics...

Cheers for the comment, I'm really happy with it. Starting to develop some long term plans but have other financial priorities at present so it may be a slow burner this one, but it will get there!

Bought them via a guy on eBay, F80 mirrors are very expensive sadly but they are hard to come by so command a decent price!
