    My passenger side mirror is a bit tatty and was looking on ebay for a new one. Came across these:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-3-SERIES-E...-/380344099789

    pretty cheap! For a pair too. Now, what do people reckon? Don't want my car to look chav or cheapen the look, but they seem ok. Not entirely sure they'll look good though.

    Any views appreciated, good or bad.

    Ta chaps
