Dirty F30

Well, not washed for over two weeks - but how does the EBII stay so clean?!

I added M-style mirror covers, what do we think? I love them!

From "AutoID" (UK company I'm afraid), easy to take off and replace (just popping mirror out and undoing some clips).

No not when off I don't think:



But when on, they are slightly bluer in real life than in the pictures (camera doesn't pick it up as well). For my car it looks fine, and it might well burn off slightly and become whiter anyway with time.

Glad you went for the gloss black rather than carbon mirrors

Lovely car, I'm very jealous of you

I must stop looking at threads like these as it only depresses me more each time I see someone else driving around in a car I want but which I'm so far off being able to afford

Thanks so much! I was the same.... I decided to put my E90 on AutoTrader "just to see"..... it sold the next day and I then was "forced" into getting the F30

Yeh do it man! Gloss black surely - colour matched wouldn't stand out, and unless you have other carbon stuff it'll look tacky.

I agree about the carbon, but gloss black? i think colour coded would look better on my colour.
