So the caps (carbon or aluminum) are placed on top with sticky strips? No need to remove the oem caps?

Yes.

However I had carbon caps on my silver Astra H and I could just see the paint edge under the cap when looking closely, so I wrapped the edge of the cap with black vinyl before fitting. The fitting might be better on theses though.

Polished aluminium mirror caps fitted a couple of weeks ago.
Easy to fit, good quality product and perfect fit over the oem mirror caps.

Sorry for the poor quality images...

Like what you did to your fog light surroundings. You wrapped them without taking them of the car?

It's hard to photograph carbon mirrors on a white car.
