F430 Mirrors

I broke my drivers side mirror on my 2006 nero F430 and the dealer wants $2,700 for another one installed and painted!!! Was thinking about replacing them both with carbon fiber mirrors. Any suggestions?

That is ludicrous. If Ferrari were deliberately trying to put people off ownership, they couldn't do better than this.

Call the independent parts shops. There are quite a few of them. Ricambi is a sponsor here, and there are others. Do a google search for Ferrari parts.

Billy- Welcome. Used mirrors are still expensive, but less than the new ones. Ricambi has them for $1988, but that does not include painting and installation, so the $2700 does not sound too bad.

CF mirrors are very expensive. Last set I saw on E-Bay had an asking price of $6500, atrocious. There are aftermarket CF mirros for less, that use the guts out of your old mirrors.
