Anyone from Japan here?
The parts info shows convex mirrors on both sides. Wondering if they have the warning message on them. (The Euro ones do not) If so, what language is the message in?
Also wondering if they are single or dual stage convex ones.

I don't believe they have that warning in Japan. In fact most of the warnings we're used to seeing here don't exist in Japan because there isnt worry of liability like there is here.

Remember, though, that BMWs in Japan may be sold as left OR right-hand drive, so may be mirrored accordingly.

Hack is right. I was in Singapore a while ago driving an 2001 E39. And... there aren't any warning labels as I can remember. The mirrors are dual stage, meaning they curve more towards the end right? :)

But looking at the ETK again, there a few different versions:

-> National Version Japan
-> National Version Korea
-> Gulf Version

Thanks guys. Good job!!!

That explains why they list two convex mirrors for the drivers side. I assume Japan option code 807A is drivers side convex mirror.
Left side (odd number) 51 16 8 397 885
Right side (even number) 51 16 8 397 886

Them being dual stage explans why the Euro (left hand drive, no writing) passenger side convex mirror has a different part number. 51 16 8 397 880.
