How do these Ebay ones sit? Do they actually sit flush as if they were OEM? I know CF has a thickness to it, I wouldn't want it if its noticeable due to its thickness.

How hard are they to replace too, do they go over the existing covers?

I was thinking about buying a set of the APR carbon fiber mirrors but I rather go this route if possible.

Sweet thanks guys. dmb359, did you get yours off ebay?
yes I did. I watched a few for a while, and looked at seller's reputation, etc, and found one I felt comfortable with.

They are very thin, and come with extremely thin double sided tape (at least the ones I got did). They have a small added thickness, but it's hardly noticeable. It covers the whole mirror right up to the small gap between the painted back of the mirror, and the black face piece, so there's not really a step, it's not noticeable because of that small gap....if that makes sense, just go look at your mirrors.

ya id like to know too.
no replacement, just stick over the existing covers. super easy...just gotta be extremely careful to get it lined up perfectly the first time.

This would be a lot cheaper, and more of an OEM look, depends on what look you're going for. I've never been a fan of the APR mirrors. I was rolling the dice when I bought these, but I'm happy with how they look, and I'm glad I went this route.

Thanks for the input. I may have to try to track these down in the next week or so.
