    yeah, but its much easier and cheaper to paint them
    just an option anyway. the chrome ones really look good on black cars. for other colors, i wouldnt bother.

    I think the plasticy ones are ****e imo, I'd say go for the original if u can afford it, £150 for a genuine pair on e-bay ain't bad, I paid the full 500 or 600 (with plans on selling them in the future)

    can they not be sprayed shiny silver? I know it won't be chrome but i'd rather spend the money uprating my headlights than mirrors. Never thought about spraying the oem ones!

    I know a lot of people have the inpro ones, but if you want the Alloy look get alloy, if you want plastic stay body colour - IMO.

    I got mine the same time as Adam.
    They are really good mirrors, moulded from the OE plastic mirrors just chromed and fit really well.

    I have the same ones from the same seller . Not bad, quite expensive for what they are. but i had 2 damaged covers one cracked , the other scratched badly. so it was like an extra 15/20 instead of standard replacements. As for quality i would say they are ok not AMAZING. but good enuff.They dont look painted and they have a good enuff finish for me to be happy for now. . r . we shall see after winter what they look like..theres a picture on my profile.
