Question Where to buy the correct NEWER style Mirror Covers for SL55?

I already bought two sets of the newer-style mirror covers from ebay, one set from Taiwan seller and the other one from US seller.
But both of them shipped the wrong mirrors!
They won't fit. The openings/mount points are different.
And I already painted one set also

This is the ones I bought from the US-based seller (it says they fit 2004 SL55 but NOT):
http://www.ebay.com/itm/110951494217...S:3160&vxp=mtr

My mechanic took these pics for comparison, left one is my current OEM mirror:

This is the reason i have not tried to update the mirrors. Someone else ordered some in a different thread and said they wouldn't fit his car either.

Definitely let us know which ones you find that actually do fit properly. Good luck.

These don't tell you anything since you don't know what cars they have.
The ebay auctions I bought them from also says it will fit 100% for 2004 SL55, turned out NOT.

....

My mechanic is gonna try one more time today to put them on....if they can't do it by tomorrow, I'm just gonna tell them to hold on to them till a later time when we can figure something else out.......there has to be a way to get them on there some how......they are beautiful....raw carbon fiber updated LED side mirrors....they would greatly enhance the look of our cars too....what a total buzzkill.......

the above link goes to a picture on ebay of basically the mirrors I bought.....what a shame....

so i have a 04 sl55 and i purchased the 02-05 cf mirrors from gaugetuner on ebay. They DO NOT FIT, he told me to ship them back so I did yesterday at a cost of $60, he says I need the 06-08 cf mirrors so once he receives the incorrect ones i shipped back to him he will send the ones that are supposed to fit and I will let you all know if they work out. If the new ones dont work out I give up because I sent pics of my mirrors completely taken apart, so we shall see

which ones did you get? did you get the ones that said "02-04 earlier 05 carbon fiber mirrors"? because I got those also and just shipped them back yesterday. He is telling me I need the "06-08 later 05 mirrors" and I hope these will be correct or I will be

I bought one set from Gaugetuner also, which is the mirrors set that I already painted in my first post.
Here's the box, it says it's for 02-05 R230 which doesn't fit.
