Door Mirrors

Post by MelloYello » Fri Jun 03, 2011 10:45 pm

I am not looking to modify my RX but i have to change the door mirrors.
The mirrors from Aus/NZ/US models are more streamlined than the UK versions.
Has anyone come across them here, or know if they are available as an aftermarket purchase?

Cheers James

Don't you like our cricket bats!
I've some oz spec leccy mirrors,which i never got round to fitting.
Think i paid £75 for them with shipping,if you want them,i'd like cost price back.
They're in good nick,glass fine etc,but could do with a blast of black paint to casing.
Cheerio.

James,
the aero style mirrors aren't available in the UK ( or Europe I think)... we had to suffer the cricket bat spring loaded mirrors over here.
Myself and Stu (syebba) imported a set each from a breaker in Queensland last year... proper electric rhd mirrors...

US spec mirrors won't fit as they are specific to LHD cars.... you need aussie or NZ mirrors.

Well they definitely look better than the brick that is currently attached to my door.

Don't fit the LHD mirrors to your car, you won't see out of them.... Stu's Aussie mirrors are the right ones...

Cricket Bats.....Yeh.....Love 'em. Specsavers say they're best for me anyway. (Silly old grunter- is this engine oil? Says 'Dot 4' on the bottle....hmmm).

Get a red coach line to be really 1980's.
