Very nice! I think this is the first time I've seen complete carbon fiber mirrors. If you need someone to test them I'll volunteer.

The pic above is probably my car at APR. As for the weight, I'm not sure they weighed them. I'm sure it's minimal as most of the weight is the mechanical motor and mirror not the shell. The fit & finish is amazing. You need to be aware they are one piece and not folding.

Unless anything has changed they are just the shell. You transfer your XM, motor and mirror over to it. They were not doing cores you got to keep you old shells to put back to stock. Contact Southern Car Parts or APR to verify.

That is correct....you transfer all the inner workings over to the new mirror housing.

Honestly, when APR first told me about them last October, I expected them to be around 1200 bucks. If you really think about it, 885 for two is not that bad considering the complexity to make them.

Call your local chevy dealer and price out OEM Non CF mirror shells.

On some cars, darker colors they will look ok, lighter not so good. At that price I'm perfectly happy with the OEM mirrors.

Looked at instructions, seems that the cores have to be taken apart at the swivel base and will not be able to swivel if you decided to restore to stock, so getting to keep your core shells is not really that big of a benefit.
