    Thanks for the heads-up Nemal. I’ve grabbed a set from Amazon for $120 with free expedited delivery which is a bargain. They are due to arrive mid- August.

    Awesome =) Let me know how you go. The mirror cap clips can be a little tricky too, but there should be videos out there.

    BTW - I recommend a set of plastic trim tools for the mirror removal. These can be found at supercheap/autobarn etc and are relatively cheap. They are really handy for any trim work - like removing inner door cards to fix your door handle that your wife accidentally popped out of the door =S

    Thanks for the tips!

    I bought a trim removal kit recently as I’ll be removing the door trims and applying some sound deadening soon as part of an audio upgrade, so I’m all set!

    I’ve seen some people use large suction cups to help with the mirror removal - I might have some lying around.

    Suction caps are an interesting idea.. the mirror is held in with 4x sets of clips on the ring. The trick it to get them to release while applying gentle outward pressure (ie. suction cap). You need to tilt the mirror all the way down to get in behind it.

    There are two mirror cap clips. The inner one is relatively easy to unclip (while applying gentle pressure), where the outer one (road side) was more tricky - I found twisting a flat blade screwdriver to hold it open helped.

    The indicators come with instructions that show which screws to loosen/remove. They didn't show the indicator clip though, which is at the inside bottom of the indicator light.

    Anyhow, best of luck with it - it's relatively easy, hopefully my experience may just save you little time figuring it out for yourself.

    Looks terrific, well done.

    Who did you get to paint your callipers red? Any chance you can post a closer photo of those so that I can see what it looks like?

    My OSRAM indicators arrived today. Installation took about half an hour thanks to nermal's tips, plus I also purchased a pair of suction cups to make the job of removing the mirror glass even easier:

    The build quality is excellent - truly OEM quality or better. Perfect fitment, plug and play.

    I never noticed how dim the original items were until I compared them back to back with the OSRAM replacements.

    Below is a short video showing the difference.

    No worries, and thanks again for the heads-up on these little beauties!

    I reckon they are a no-brainer at the current amazon price vs the aliexpress equivalent, particularly given the five year warranty, the testing they've been through regarding waterproofing, and also the use of UV resistant plastic. I wouldn't want to repeat the job over and over due to failing or leaking parts or discoloured plastic lenses.
