They look great. Does anyone have the contact details ie phone number or email address for Synth Carbon? I am interested in contacting him/them and buying wholesale for my parts business here in the UK.

Purchased! Thank you!
Got my caps yesterday! I installed one of them today. Unfortunately the other has a crack in one of the main tabs, so I'm going to repair that before I install the second. Honestly, I think the crack was done in shipping.

The install is easy.. but a bit of a pain getting the OEM cap off. You're likely going to feel like something is going to break, it might, hopefully it is minor. Here are the instructions. Yes you need to follow them, no there aren't any short cuts. https://www.collegehillshonda.com/instructions/civic/2017/typer/doormirrorcovers.pdf

Overall I'm happy for the price. They are OEM caps with carbon laid over top and layers of clear coat. The fitment is 99% there, which for a custom hand made product is damn good! There was a little bit of polishing compound left on the caps, one minor scratch, and the cracked tab (probably from shipping). Hopefully the second one goes on as easy or easier.

I definitely recommend this product!

I believe the only way to contact them is Instagram.

These do not go over the stock mirror covers, you have to take off the OEM mirror covers and it's a direct fitment with the carbon mirror caps.

I would have assumed these were an overlay. I've never seen a vehicle with a removable mirror cap. They really are clipped and not aren't plastic welded tabs?

From my understanding, they are carbon layed over stock caps and then cleared. So fitment is actually OEM.

Pretty much 3 clips on the OEM, pop them off, and boom they're off. Pretty crazy to think about it lol

I can only think that was done to service the heating elements in the mirrors. This is good to know because taping off that mirror is a pain in the rump when I'm plastidipping lol
