    Yup and can be tarted up from time to time easily with some black dye.

      A set of wind deflectors is on my list and being dark they do seem to tie in nicely with darker mirrors, think I'll give the satin black spray a go, worst case i can take the covers off or repalce the mirrors completely if that buggers.
      Unsure whether this is of interest, but theres a discount code offer on eBay PRESENT15 for 15% or NECTAR20 for 20%, for T4 standard wing mirrors!
      Just over £20 each, which may be cheap enough, saving time and money plus allows you to resell the Brut & 70's chrome?

        Thats not bad. I broke the offside glass in ours in July helping Amy and Kieara move house. Be tempted by one of those instead of a new glass. Or i could fit the doka mirrors. Now theres an idea.

          I heard thats going out of fashion soon and that chrome is coming back! ... Id deffo hedge my bets with the 70’s right now. Lol

            I'll give the Satin black spray a go, i prefer painted look to the bare plastic.

            Has anyone fitted a LHD passenger mirror to the drivers door? my passenger mirror seems to give better view for reversing because its taller

              I never thought about doing that.. it would sort out the asymmetry that upsets my OCD.

                Some have, it was mentioned back in 2017 i think. Does look even but some said the vision wasent as good as the standard rhd offside door mirror.

                  Yup, I have it and it looks good but visibility is a little restricted, you need to get a mirror with a wider field of vision and space it out a little to push the reflection wider

                    Yes, I have.
                    I liked the symmetry on my daily driver but didn't like the view I could achieve with its electric mirror controls for my seating position and height.
                    Had both the standard and a LHD unit painted after taking it off and have both ready to trial fit on the Beast, which has different seat bases and seating.

                      Anyone know if the manual adjustment ones are better? I don’t have electrics

                        Pass, the whole mec is different so it may have more throw.
                        You could also have 2 drivers mirrors on rather than 2 passenger?
