Default Painted Side Mirrors

Hey guys...shouldI pay almost $200 for these painted side mirrors or should get my stock mirrors painted for free by a family friend that owns a body shop? Will the self painted mirrors look the same (i don't want my car looking cheap)? I know that saving $200 is great but what are the cons of gettin my stock mirrors painted

Please let me know ASAP...Here's the $200 ones(I'd get them in black of course)

They're mirror covers. Here's the link:

By the way...Thanx s2k!! It looks like it but just to be sure; did you do the same to your side rocker panels?

The Gt's come stock with body color macthed rocker panels. If you go ebay or some takeoff websites they sell painted rocker panels for 99 bucks.
