    It was a spontaneous thing, one of my favorite and easiest things I've done.
    Always love painted mirrors.

    Hard choice since your car is black, and they are well... black lol but I guess the gloss is missing. The added look from the gloss could well make it look even more sexy. I'm going to be having mine color matched like Orange's mirrors but white obviously lol.

    Termi mirrors are nice but do need to be modified to look right on our cars. I know some people wouldn't be to confident hacking up $350 mirrors but if you have the ability to cut up and rework the termis I say go for it. I did some for mine and they turned out mint.

    The two tone looks better on the Termi and Export mirrors because of the break in the mirror where it folds. I'm not sure how that will look on a 1 piece mirror.

    The crease breaks it up.

    I agree with Bob 100%. That's the main reason I never tried it on mine, that crease makes it or breaks it in my opinion

    I would just paint them to match. Simple, cheap, and will look 100x better.

    x10 on paint to match. I dont think the two tone would be worth the effort since its black and it may not look right without the small gap

    i tried to chop these to give you an idea. i def think it would show plenty of contrast from matte to high gloss black.

    Make the crease part longer and paint the triangle part matte black like original. Iirc there is a thread on svtp forums on how to make export/termi looking mirrors
