Anyone tried these mirror replacements?



My E46 M3 mirrors are starting to get the discolouration around the edges and I know it will only get worse over time. Anyone have any experience with these mirrors?

Any feedback on installation?

Yeah, unless they have the plugs on the back. Check eBay, I've used those ones before and they retained the heating.

Thanks Guys. That's good to know. Question, is the heating hat causes the weird colouring?

^^i've heard people say that but i dont think that's true. moisture getting in between the layers of glass is what causes it IMO (and it happens more on aftermarket glass than OEM. Both my cars are 10+ years old and the glass is in good shape with the OEM parts)
