Broke my wing mirror. Change the colour?

Very annoyed. Was reversing out my garage this morning, after squeezing it in yesterday due to someone almost blocking my entrance. A case of the flu and not enough attention, and i clipped the mirror. It bent back, but cranked all the surround

Question is, should i keep black mirrors, or try a different colour? White to match the wheels?

Think it may look naff so looking for input.

I'm not moving away from stock sei mirrors though.

Cheers,

Kristian

Re: Broke my wing mirror. Change the colour?

Am never too keen on the different colours wing mirror regardless of any car. (unless is carbon).

I think white to go with the wheels would look wicked. But only with standard mirrors, imho aftermarket mirrors look naff.

Re: Broke my wing mirror. Change the colour?

How about a contrast on the mirror tips?

Either white mirrors with black tips or black with white tips (i'd try the second one first as easier to change if you hate it)

I would say leave them the same colour, different coloured mirrors don't look right, no idea why

I was going to smooth an fill the ends if i'm respraying. Theres no prcatical reason for that plastic tip is there?

Made my mind up, I'm sticking with the same colour. I was 50/50 on it. Now just to find one cheap at the scrappy

Cheers for all the input everyone

I did say apart from the naturally carbon fibre type mirror. And really the difference betweem the greyish carbon colour and a black sei is not that big
