Carbon Fiber (CF) AC Schnitzer Mirrors

I have finally tracked down a manufacturer that can make the AC
Schnitzer mirrors in both CF and in FG. These are a copy of the actual AC
Schnitzer mirrors that are virtually impossible to get. Minor adjustments
have been made to the mold to make these mirror fit better than the
actual ACS part. A lot of R&D was put into these mirrors and are top
notch. I have been on the phone with the gentleman making this product
and he has a passion for what he does and stands behind his products.

Instead of those square mirrors causing aero drag, these are much more
aerodynamic and look good doing it. In my opinion, these are much better
than the DTM mirror because there is more glass and you can actually see
out of it.

Mirrors will also come with the glass. Mirrors will be manual and will be much
lighter than your stock ones. Was told that it will require four M5 bolts
approximately one inch long to attach the mirrors. The stock ones are
too short. You can get it at any hardware store such as Home Depot.

CF will have the glass mounted while the FG will be unmounted for those
that would like to get them painted.















I need to get 10 orders, CF or FG, for the manufacturer to get the
first batch going. Prices are as follows and will include Priority shipping
within the states.

CF: $390
FG: $340

Please add your name to the list so we can gauge interest and hope to
get production on the way. Please only add your name if you are serious
about getting these. I have been part of GB and they usually don't happen
because people will flake. Once the 10 order limit is reached, there will be
a 10% deposit to keep people from flaking. That way people won't flake
and the manufacturer is not being stuck with unsold product. Being on his
good side is a must cause I am trying to work with him in developing other
products.

I will have him ship the mirrors to me first, verify the quality of each, and
then send it straight to you. This way I can guarantee the quality and you
aren't shipped a bad part.

For those wondering who I am, I am an active supporter of S14.net and
passing these products along to other E30 enthusiasts. Here are my stats
on that forum: http://www.s14.net/forums/member.php?u=3688 You are
more than welcome to send me a PM or email to verify my status.

Do not hesistate to ask me questions. I will try to answer all questions,
and can talk to the manufacturer if more details are needed.

Please note if you would like FG or CF.

1 post and as vague as possible, sounds like a scam. Even if its not you can get real ACS's for that price.

Maybe Mr Blue Devil can vouch for me. Check on S14.net to see my stats.

I don't have the product in hand so I can only get limited pics for now. I do know of
people who have these exact mirrors and I will have them take additional photos
if needed.

Oh, if you can find a set of authentic ACS mirrors, I recommend that you jump on them.
They are truly hard to come by and people pay big bucks.

Also fitment on the ACS mirrors need a little persuasion to fit nicely. These fit better
than the real ones as you can see in the pictures.

The manufacturer does high quality parts and spends the time. He is a one man
operation so everything is done properly. That is why the prices are higher than
what you might find on eBay. I am only providing an option for the E30 crowd and
I know these mirrors aren't for everyone.

I know you are trying to 'look out' for the rest of us, but I will personally vouch for the OP - Stand up guy all the way. What is 'so vague' exactly? I thought everything was perfectly clear..

edit - ohh, and can you please find me like new ACS mirrors for this price please!?


CHU - Great to see you here!

You only called BS because you know him. Its a pretty sketchy 1st post imo. The mirrors look great and I am glad that you know the guy isn't going to town on e30 owners.

can you please go back and READ my post!? Look for that magic word NEW that you are putting in my mouth. If you can find a used set then you are lucky and patient. To find a new set you are going to need a time machine

Good to be here. Been here before but never signed up. Hope to contribute what I can.

I know JEDM3 has things covered over at S14.net, so I figured I would
share this product with others.

well it wasn't like Sir Alibinladen offering us up millions of dollars, LOL. I guess after being part of the S14 community, interacting, buying, selling etc etc I was a little shocked that anyone ever thought this would be a scam coming from Chutrain. Sure it was basically his first post, but to many of us he's been around a long time.

Anyone who participates in this GB will not be disappointed!
