Anyone know where I can get a set of carbon mirrors like this, in the UK, quickly?

They are meant to be very poor quality. I am sure someone on here has bought them in the past?

Are the mounts/arms not 3D printed and this made them brittle? Seem to recall that was the issue, happy to be corrected.

Oh really? I'm sure I read a post singing their praises. Someone must make good ones

you can get the actual mirror with a standard metal mounting but they come from china and therefore take a while to arrive. if you check out @alias23 build thread the details are on there.

They’re made to order from Japan about 4-6 weeks

It would appear everything from Transforged falls apart...

Must be something else on the market with the design I've pictured?

Do NOT buy anything from Transforged. The mirrors were wobbly, then cracked.  They blamed my fitting, but everyone I've talked to with them has had the same problems.

They actually cracked as they couldn't take the stresses.

Their lights aren't great either.

Right, I've been asking around

I have found a UK based company that is willing to design and manufacture a carbon mirror product, similar to the original image I posted.

We need 6 buyers as a minimum to get this product off the ground, £650 a pair + vat is the current quote.

Here is their website, they know their way around carbon;

I've never seen reverie products in person so can't comment on quality, but I've heard of the brand. 

Unfortunately at that price I'm gonna have to pass. Not because they aren't worth it, but because I have other commitments and things I'd rather do with the money

I’d rather get my Transforged ones fixed properly and save a fortune.

Just now, rafphillips said:

At that price are you factoring in a pokey bum [email protected] from you as part of deal?  If so you can count me in.

Wow, that's quite an admittance, but we all suspected anyway.

Were going to pay over, they will be starting from scratch so I assume were paying for the whole development process.

As there are very few UK based options, we have little choice and a few of us have wanted to lose the metro mirrors for a while, therefore, il put you down for 2 pairs @rafphillips

Ok,I'm getting the impression the price is too high.

Where would we need to negotiate to get more interest? £500?

In all seriousness though if we are paying for the development process I would want to look to get more people on board and price down.

I wouldn’t ever pay more than £500 for a pair of mirrors.

If they are good they will sell like hot cakes at that amount?

Could be interested, but the price is a bit steep as I don't have a hatred of the metro mirrors  in quite the same way as others!

Those who don't know riverie they are very good, and do a lot of fabrication work. Set up by ex lotus folk IIRC, and do some very good work. Had various bits from them over the years

Interested but would want to see design and fitting instructions prior to committing as too big or too small or sticky outey will look Rubbish, In do love the look of GFW mirror set up.

i looked up the Transforged ones and the cost seemed huge as had to pay for mounting arms and then the mirrors and mirror housing on top or am I wrong?
