looking for parts

Hi All
my big girl did a turtle in parking lot last night. The lot was on a grade not enough lean for kickstand. Anyway, has anyone tried the after market mirrors? Or have a sight with good used parts? I'm looking at just under $500 for BMW oem. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks Mark

Re: looking for parts

I picked up a set off of ebay, made in China, but seem to be well made. I think they were about $240 for the set. I just need to find some matching paint, but then again I may just leave them as they are.

I didn't use the right hand mirror..If that's the one you need I'd sell ya mine for $120 Plus shipping.

The absolute best site for used parts is Ebay. But watch out, a lot of sellers think the parts are worth dealer new prices, skip them and keep searching. Don't get stuck on having to get the right color, buy any color and just rattle can paint them, then rattle clan clear. I use http://www.preval.com/ preval sprayers and I get pro paint shop quality out of them and a pint of matched color paint from the auto paint store that is mixed "ready to spray" and then use a 2K clear rattle can. (Spraymax) Someone here posted a link to get real BMW paint imported if you want to go that route.

Re: looking for parts

I bought the ones from China and they're not bad at all. I used a spray can to paint them and they came out really good.

Re: looking for parts

Just what I was looking for, glad to here the ones from china seem to fit ok,

I agree, paint is a minor issue.

Any specific seller you bought them from?

Thanks
Glen
