Tekarbon Carbon Fiber Side Mirrors Installed

Finally got the side view mirors installed after having them sit around for a while. I really like them. What do you guys think?

They are replacements that use all the same parts from original mirror setup. My car is black sapphire metallic. I'll take full car pictures soon with them on.

Was it an easy job to complete the swap?

I actually had my indy shop do the install. I didn't want to risk screwing it up by breaking the glass or something lol. The guy who installed it said it was a bit of a PITA to get it apart then put the glass back afterwards. But as far as fitment goes, it's spot on. I'll have more pics tonight. They look especially nice when the sun hits them

I think they would look better on my car, and you should give them to me. Tekarbon never has them in stock.

When I bought them a couple of months ago they were also out of stock but when you continue with the purchase on tekarbon.com it says, if I remember correctly, that it would be made and shipped in 4-5 weeks.

Beedub, well I bought them used from a fellow forum member who if I remember correctly lived on the east coast, but took very good care of his car. I park my car indoors for the most part, and at work it's a covered (but not completely enclosed) space. Once in a while I'll park it outside in the airport long term parking for about 4-5 days at a time(I know...big no no, but it's my daily driver and I travel a lot for work) if the covered long term parking is full, but all in all the car stays shaded from the elements.

I also wash the car normally and add paint protection to the CF in the same way I do to the rest of the body and so far they still look new!
