They now provide three options:
  1. Carbon over ABS plastic replacement covers
  2. Carbon add-on that goes over the existing mirror cover
  3. 100% pre-preg carbon replacement covers

The carbon over ABS was reviewed by Pantagathus here and he documented some slight fitment issues although he spoke version highly of their other carbon accessories. It was in this thread that it was mentioned that XXII would be making a 100% carbon version which caused me to research it. It wasn't listed (or I didn't see it) on their site so I reached out to them directly. Per that conversation #3 above is 100% pre-preg carbon.

If the mirror is the same shape on their web page, it will not fit G8x car.
I agree that the pic doesn't look like the right version - they look like the one at the beginning of this thread. I'm guessing that Pantagathus was sent a version that didn't match the photos online.

If they don't fit for whatever reason then they'll be sent back.

Thanks for gathering the information. Is it worth paying $290 (for both sides) more to have all fiber rather than the ABS plastic?

My pleasure. I think it is considering the minor fitment issue with the ABS version in the thread that I referenced previously. Best price I could find for the OEM version was $800 each so for ~25% of that total cost I figured it's worth a try.

The G80 /82 mirror has different fin.

Check the photo below and compare with yours
MMnut is correct. This is how we made the determination.

Here's a video of NCG80M3 installing the XXIITuning full carbon mirror caps.

I asked him which version he got in the video comments and he responded back it was the full carbon set.

At 12 minutes into the video you can see the inside of the mirror cap and its ABS. If it was full carbon youd see carbon on the back side like this:

You're right, it's definitely the ABS version. I was curious which version he got which is why I asked in the video comments. I suppose it's possible he doesn't know what he's got. My full carbon set are supposed to ship out this week.

It also looks like the full carbon price on their site has gone up to $691.
