I have them and fitment was ok. You could still see some paintwork underneath them but it's not too noticeable. It does its job and looks like cf so I'm happy. If you have OCD about these types of things, I wouldn't recommend it

I would take a good look at RW carbon:

https://www.********.com/bmw-f10-m5-f06-f12-f13-m6-carbon-fiber-mirror-covers.html

Im looking at these right now, replacements at less than 50% of the price. From them, I have grilles, side vents, and the front lip was just ordered. Quality stuff.

Additionally, you can order the 1x1 pattern that matches our roofs... which is a perfect match

Ive seen it. Pattern is 2x2 however, everything ive added is 1x1 to perfectly match the CF roofs. My mirrors would be the same. Odd that bmw M CF pieces are 2x2 weave while roof is 1x1. Drives me nuts! A little OCD on my end, but I want them to match

Im not spending 1200 on something im going to scrape, but the weave difference is pictured here

Is the diffuser worth it? Also the carbon tips would they fit correctly over the black competition pipe tips?

With these pieces, IMO, just use eBay or 3rd party knockoffs. Fitment and finish shouldn't vary that much
