    Default Mirrors - Black or Carbon Fibre?

    As title, can't seem to decide... Def need to do something to blend them in or make them look smaller... Is there any after market Vec C mirrors? Haven't seen any...

    Any way given the choice which one? I'll do the pillar trims to match then, either black or CF...



    Who is it that does the pillar kits again, I'd want to try get the sheet for the mirrors off them too if go for CF, wouldnt want a miss matched CF pattern...

    Don't like the whole carbon fibre look, so have voted for gloss black. Saying that, I think they look fine as they are!

    Default mirrors

    even i am in a dilema to paint/carbonfibre my side view mirrors or not.
    so i photoshopped my car to see how ll things would work out.

    I am planning to apply the carbon-fiber tape onside-views

    Hope the photograph gives u an idea

    PS- sorry for poor quality
