    Does the LE get different CF side mirror caps than the other versions of the car if you elect to buy that option? I thought they were all the same...

    The red on the LEs is the base and you have to pay to upgrade to the CF (black) from there - at least that’s how it is in the US.

    Some launch editions come with optional equipment - carbon fiber mirror caps

    Yeah but isn’t it just the same CF caps as the other non-LE Supras? Like, the base on the LEs is non-CF red, and on the 3.0 and 3.0 Premium it’s non-CF black, but you can add the same black CF mirror caps to any (LE, 3.0 or 3.0 Premium) MKV. In other words, I don’t think that the LEs get some sort of special CF mirror cap option that the other trim levels don’t.

    LEs come standard with red painted plastic (not CF) caps.

    Optional caps are CF and are clearcoated so you can see the mat. Typical gray/brown CF color.

    If you get a LE and add the CF caps do you get the Red caps also?

    I think it depends on where they’re installed... weren’t some people saying that no, the red caps didn’t come with the car if they opted for the CF?

    For that reason I picked up an LE without the CF caps and will swap it out later if I choose to do so just so that I have them.

    All launch editions comes with red painted mirror caps from the factory.

    Once they arrive in the USA, depending on how the car was ordered they may be replaced with the accessory carbon fibre mirror caps at port or at the dealer. If they are installed at port, you will not be getting the red caps. If the dealer installs them you can ask to get the red caps back as well.

    The carbon mirror caps are a normal accessory for the car, there is no special carbon mirror caps that are specifically for the launch edition.

    I don’t get why they keep our red caps. That’s total bull. I paid extra (Forced Dealer Accessory) we should get both!

    Yup, this is what I meant when I said it depends on where they're installed in my post. Unfortunately, I don't think you have any choice as to where they're installed. So I'd say if you want the CF caps on an LE, just put the order for them in after the fact and buy your LE with red ones because you can get CF caps after the fact... the original red ones, you can't.

    I’ll find the red caps part numbers somehow. They can’t be more than a couple of hundred bucks.
