Do the M ones have the curved inner edges, look like eyelashes?😆

Looking to replace the Estoril blue ones on my 2015 M Sport.

Lol I did the same. Think he accepted £24 in the end.

Like I said mine were perfect, but you never know what you're gonna get on EBay in regards to paint quality so if they're less than perfect check out my guide I posted on Colour sanding and they will be perfect in no time

I went with 22 so looks like it'll be 24 then.

Did you have to colour sand them?

Did you get any wind noise from them at higher speeds? I've heard that they produce some noise when going motorway speeds? Car looks stunning btw!

If there's an option to make an offer, then you've got to make it.

Piece of piss, Google it and watch a very short video.

Pop the glass out and then squeeze the 3 tabs that you'll now be able to see and gently ease it off. Then just push the new one carefully into place making sure all the clips are pushed home and then pop the glass back into place.

You don't even need to pop the glass out mate. Just use a trim removal tool and starting from the front, bottom, push it inside the cover and pop off the first clip, then work your way around to the top and do the others.

You have to be firm but literally takes like 20 seconds and no risk of breaking the glass
