Default Wide Angle Mirror Glass

Can anyone (especially euro members) confirm whether the e36 m3 had wide angle class on both mirrors as an option in Europe? I tried looking at BF but it looks like the topic died with no resolution.

P/N* 51.16.2.267.191* (driver side) 
and P/N* 51.16.2.267.224* (passenger side, with no writing)
. I've had them on my car for years -- took a bit of getting used to on driver's side. I'm a big fan.

I will say that I'm not a fan of this style of glass... but I'm sure it is due to my limited use with it. It's VERY weird to drive with.

more concerned with passenger side so definitely a noticeable difference?

so you ordered this too as well Brett? If so, can you confirm the part numbers as well?

I have also seen part numbers 51 16 2 267 192 (driver) 51 16 2 267 223 (co-driver)

Another member's car has ACS mirrors with this style glass in them (similar enough to BMW). I can't confirm the pn unfortunately. Anytime I do work on his car, I get to drive with them, haha.

All EU M3 mirrors are what you call wide angle mirrors.

Since I don’t know any better since day one of E36 ownership (April 2006) I can only imagine your ‘narrow view’ mirror’s must feel weird to me.

Default Re: Wide Angle Mirror Glass

So the standard ones here in NZ are part numbers 51162267192 and 51162267223 - are they the "not wide angle" mirrors? I assume so because they seem flat and don't have any silly text on them.

Why would one need wide angle mirrors? To tow a caravan? Otherwise I would have thought that situational awareness negated any need for them?
