    hi there,
    In the market for some decent quality carbon mirrors/covers
    I have the alter style smaller mirrors on my s3 which seems harder to find!
    Just wondering if anyone has any helpful input..
    Found one pair on eBay for £160 which seems a reasonable price to me the others I have seen are £300 which seems steep but I have never bought carbon items before so unsure
    Cheers

    Real carbon fibre is expensive,I have seen members try and drum up group buys on bonnets/wings and even with a discount they are are pricey but thats the nature of the beast.

    Yes agreed I know it tends to be pricey but £160 is a price I’d be willing to pay even maybe £250 but want to know the quality is decent you see , I have messaged the eBay seller and did they would send more pics but yet to be seen
    Cheers

    Seen havok things being hit and miss as they do the knee bars in carbon an stuff but will give them a message
    Cheers

    Personally I’d keep the silver ones on anyway, have you got any other carbon fibre bits?

    No but my mirrors I have now don’t match,
    Ones shiny and the other is like a satin effect and it bugs me when I notice it ( had a mirror smashed off and got a second hand replacement)

    Spoken to luke he can get them for £250 I think but I had forgotten till now
    That link looks promising but the delivery date is 20-40 days which isn’t brilliant

    There's plenty of them on aliexpress.
    Maybe there are some with faster delivery..

    the sellers always put long delivery times on the listing because of how aliexpress works. the money is held in escrow until you (or a recorded delivery confirmation) confirm delivery, or after 60 days iirc with no dispute.

    if they put 40 days, its long enough where you the buyer cant dispute it f0r taking 2 weeks. out of 60 orders on aliexpress, dont think ive had one take longer than 2 weeks.

    Oh dear, on the way to ruin your bank accounts. Once you start on carbon bits, you can’t stop

    Downward spiral this s3 was meant to stay fairly standard so I didn’t waste money modding it but that’s well gone out the window .. also just bought some dynamic style indicators as one of mine is faulty and was picked up on last MOT
