    cheers stevie. still can't make up my mind yet, i need too see one in the flesh not just photos. it's keeping me awake at night. why didn't you put one on the white one, is it a fad that you've got out of your system now? i like the first pic, looks pretty cool. any bites on piston heads yet? hope you get a decent offer.
    Tony.

    IMHO the eights look better without a rear spoiler hence the White car.

    The PH & Classic Car ads have proved very positive, many enquiries but no cash, I'm thinking of putting some cheaper wheels on & lowering the price? we'll see but I guess it's not a good time to be selling anything really??

    ...and once you've tried you'll find out that you wasted your money. Be warned e31 owners, if you get a set thinking they'll fit you will be incorrect.

    If you want m-tech looking mirrors on an e31 but don't want to shell out for originals there are other options but I won't post it here as I don't want to be seen as advertising a parts retailer/alternative forum.

    Hence why I stated the only way is to try it-I did not state it was correct or not....

    Don't worry, I wasn't having a go... I just didn't want members to go and waste their money on a fruitless venture!

    Quite Right. Since we're on the subject. The motors are the same part number too.
