About Door Mirror Casing Covers
The BMW Door Mirror Casing Cover is a plastic housing/cover for the door mirror.
Attached around the door mirror unit, just in front of the leading edge of the door window, its function is to protect the mirror unit, but it also has an aesthetic and aerodynamic purpose.
The covers are, most commonly, black plastic but may be matched to the car body colour.
As the BMW Door Wing Mirror protrudes from the side of the vehicle it is prone to collision with oncoming vehicles and although the Door Mirror unit is retractable, the cover is liable to breakage. This is the most common reason for replacement.
- It might not be the accessory that everyone needs, but for BMW drivers in South Africa who were worried about carjackers, the 'Blaster' was a flamethrower that shot huge flames from either side of the car. Not currently available in the UK…
- Everyone knows what the BMW logo looks like, but do you know what it represents? Most people think it's inspired by propellers (because of BMW's aviation history), but it's really just the same colour scheme as the Bavarian flag and was designed to showcase Bavaria.
- The BMW company was founded way back in 1916 and originally manufactured engines for planes. High demand for plane engines during WWI was good news for BMW, but they carried on making plane engines right up until 1945.
- Electric cars might be all the rage now, but BMW built their first one in 1972 and called it the BMW 1602e. It didn't quite make it to market though, thanks to the fact that it could only hold a twenty-minute charge.
- The famous German pilot, the Red Baron, called BMW engines the 'greatest in the world' and ‘the best engine in the war’.
