Thanks Junebug!!! This is exactly what I was searching for! But agree the price seems a bit high. If only there was one Less 0 in that price...

Nice find! I think this one is going to be a tough call... to spend or not to spend...

Hey AccordTR... just curious what you’re basing this on? Any past experience?

I only ask because the website has only two products listed... a T Shirt and this mirror cap set. Did they use to sell more? Did you buy the mirror caps?

Nothing’s impossible, right? I don’t think it will fit “as is” either, but itzjoker has it coming... maybe tabs can be shaved off, glue used, or something.

Just be really careful removing the oem ones so you don’t break clips. Worst case you “have to” buy the tricked out $300+ ones

Wonder if you guys did a group buy - would they lower the cost per set...

Agreed, what you need to do is “shave off” the entire bottom pce and using strong glue to fit it.

I messaged a uk company called Autoid and made a recommendation that they need to make pre lci caps. They actually got back to me and said they'll look into demand?

No, i meant in order to fit in F10 pointed mirror u got to removed the entire side mirror cover. F06 side mirror comes in 2 pcs (top & bottom) whereas F10 is in one pce. So in order to fit in the F10 pointed mirror cover u got to saw off the bottom portion to fit it in.

I didnt swap anything, the photo is showing you that cant be done. See the 2 photos u will know what i mean. The top photo is the F10 mirror.

Seems like it may be easier to get LCI caps and have a gap where the turn signal is supposed to be. If the gap bothers you, you can try to retro fit some signals.
