4C LE Alfa Rosso
I got some new in box oem flag mirrors I’m planning to put on my launch edition. Keeping an eye out for an Akra!
Let us know if the flag mirror caps fit the existing housing.I got some new in box oem flag mirrors I’m planning to put on my launch edition. Keeping an eye out for an Akra!
I havent specifically done it but I have had enough of these cars side by side and I would be SHOCKED if they didn't snap right in like any other mirror cap.Let us know if the flag mirror caps fit the existing housing.
I have read on the forum that they do not fit and require a new mirror assembly (which I find hard to believe).
Agreed. I can't find where I read that but it was recently.
Not sure I follow. They were significant enough that on 2017-18 cars they got their own line item (versus CF mirrors that were part of track pack)If the flag mirrors are so special it is surprising the sticker does not clearly show when they are on the car.
Ahh. Makes sense now. Your sticker is wrong. You got free flag mirrors, congrats! It has happened before (not specifically with flag mirrors) - this is the fourth instance I have seen where the sticker is incorrect. I will note it in the database for your car
I mentioned it (also?) a few times as the "non-direct" plug and play was reported to me from the dealership when they retro-fitted the Italia Caps to an LE without easy success. This was an 'endeavour' apparently as well as the AKRA on the same vehicle. I am still uncertain if they only just had this issue or others as well when swapping a regular CF with the ITALIA CF caps.
The way I was told, it was similar to the “late availability CF spider roof” until it got a little push.Wasn’t the Akra exhaust announced as a forthcoming option way back in 2015, but it took typical Italian development times to finally make it to market? It may have been the Club Italia‘s where it debuted, but I don’t think that it was first commissioned for them.
