Thanks for watching.
 
I have some carbon mirror covers on the way for my 204, so thanks for this
 
Another great and helpful vid. Always a pleasure to watch.Any idea if its very different for a 219 cls. I know you had one before. My indicator lens has a crack

Yes, I made one 3 years ago (production quality is a bit iffy :) )

Are there more than 1 type/shape of W204 mirror? Maybe changed between facelifts? The aforementioned carbon mirror covers I ordered don't seem to fit, but are labelled as 204 covers
 
The 204 are the same pre and post facelift

Pre facelift
 
I also have a set of carbon mirror covers for 1
 
Early W204s had a different mirror design:

I have a 2008/58 C63, but my mirrors are not like the above image, they have the light strips in them, but seem to be slightly different than all the other FL mirrors. Wondering if maybe they are aftermarket.
 
Heres a pic of the covers I have, compared to what is currently on the car. You can see my "originals" dont have the bar at the bottom, and are not flat on the edge adjacent to the body. Confused...

I'm not sure what they are off
Confusing
 
Mine also appear to be the same as in this video, but without the big indicator lense - so 2 piece and requiring undoing of 3 internal screws, not just pulling up hard like most of the DIYs show

My confusion deepens - I bought a facelift mirror from eBay, and whilst the carbon covers now fit, the facelift mirror base is slightly bigger than the pre-facelift base, so now I can't fit the facelift mirrors to the car!? Am I missing something here, there seems to be plenty of examples of people who have done this update on their cars with no issues
