are there any AFTERMARKET mirrors that FOLD or "break-away?"

(so that if they get hit, they don't completely break off?)

I would think if you get side swiped your mirrors would be the least of your problems. And even if they folded do you think they are gonna stand up to getting side swiped?

yeah, there are aftermarket blinking mirrors for e46 on eBay all the time.

Personally, I'd rather get an OEM e46 M mirror or ACS.
Blinking mirrors seems kinda cheesy.

i am either going with OEM or ACS.

the OEM sedan mirrors fold in, so that would lessen my chances of the mirrior getting clipped.

also, if i was careless (which i'm not!) in a tight situation the mirrors would fold or "break away" in the event they were struck.

when i say side-swiped, i don't mean run-off-the-road, i just mean the mirrors taking a shot.

the ACS mirrors are nice, but since they don't have a folding option, i'd be a little skeptical. they are pretty pricey and i don't have a garage.

i have not and will not consider any knock-offs or wannabe mercedes blinking mirrors, just not my style.

thanks

Your insurance didn't pay for this?

DAMN - first the hater scratched your trunk/rear bumper
Then the big accident
Now sideswiped mirrors?


Sounds like your car is cursed Andrew. Maybe you should just give me your BBS rims now - so that nothing bad happens to them :)

lol..i know
well the insurance would have covered it, but i have a 1,000 deductible...
it wasn't my fault, i just came back to my car to find the mirror broken.
i guess i could have went through insurance, but it's too much hassle and geico has been really good to me so far. i don't wanna sh*t where i eat.

i'll drop off the ch's sometime tonight.
