IND | M Performance Mirror Cap DIY

Adding to their collection of carbon fiber parts, BMW M Performance has officially released their carbon fiber mirror caps. These caps are full carbon fiber and feature the usual BMW Performance 2x2 twill weave.

There are no tools necessary for this installation, but we strongly recommend exercising caution during this install. The last thing we want is someone to scratch the gloss black mirror base.

Step 1:
Beginning at the top innermost corner of the mirror cover, grab the top edge and inner edge with both hands. Grab and apply light to medium pressure while pulling toward your body.

Step 2:
Maintain light pressure and work your way across the top of the mirror cover while pulling toward your body.

Step 3:
To install the mirror cap line up the tabs and push into the receiving tabs with light pressure.

DONE!

Product is available for purchase through our website. For further questions or information please contact an IND representative directly.

OK, that is too damn easy to take off. With my luck, they will get jacked the day after they go on. They really need a hidden screw or something.

Done, although I probably needed stronger fingers! LOL

FYI, put painters tape on the lower portion so you don't scratch it when it pops off!!

That is a great suggestion. We will update the DIY to include this option.

This is a legitimate concern.

Tried this myself today, it's not that easy to pull off, it's actually pretty hard imo.

Thumbs down

yeah, i've found most of these IND videos to be pretty ludicrous. When it comes to actually doing the task it is MUCH harder. I do appreciate the fact that they show you how to do things though.

So hard that I could only get the passenger side installed, the other one won't pop out for some reason.

Yeah Totally agree with ^

Did the performance grill, mirrors, spoiler, badge, side grills and rear diffuser. The superficial stuff with adhesive is no problem. The mirror caps, diffuser and even the performance grill are no way as easy as the video. It was doable, is just took more time and for the grill a screw driver to unclip the lower clips

Took both stock caps off to see if I could wrap them. Broke tabs on both of them. FML. They go back on, but the OCD side of me knows that tabs are broken off. I guess I'm buying CF caps.

Haha me and my buddy tired tackling it and just gave up and went to the shop. But thank you guys at iND so much for all these DIY videos and instructions. I am pretty sure I can do the engine cover myself though
