can you guys go outside and look at them for me? tell me if the drivers side one is slightly longer (more longer in the base) than the passenger side? does it look ever so slightly different?

I walked outside in the garage and did a quick measurement for you(of an actual M3 stock, not a mirror replacement on a 325 or something). Yes the drivers side is longer than the passengers side by like 1/4-1/2 inch. Not much, but noticable if you look at them. My guess is that they do this because of angles and such for best visability because the mirrors are smaller. Who knows.

Yes they are longer. Your welcome.

More than likely to help with drivers view. That's one weird fact. So I bet some replica M3 mirrors probably didn't compensate for this difference?

It would make sense. My roomate drives a Mercedes E320, and his mirrors are completely different. The passenger's side is much shorter than the driver's side. I guess it's a German thing. Could be best viewing, parking, or just to screw with American drivers!?

Haha, I never noticed that! Here's a pic of my new car, and yes, the passenger side mirror seems a little bit closer to the car!

Yup... left is longer than the right one.... I knew when I first got the car.. that the left one felt a little longer.. but then later I got around to measuring it... ha... good stuff.
