Another Mirror Cap Thread

Hi,

I have searched through the forum and have found info on carbon mirror caps.
From what ive read, I have a great concerned for buying ones that are a "good deal" but end over fading within a year or so.

I am planning on having a shop apply Xpel PPF within the next month or so which includes doing the side mirrors.

Would anyone be able to provide a link to reasonably priced mirror caps that wont fade? I understand the film will help with fading but still want good quality.

Thanks.

I retro-fitted these to my M235i and after 3 years, they're still looking good. No yellowing etc.

TBH, I think body color would look as good, but at the time I ordered, it wasn't an option, so I went for the CF.
