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

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

    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

    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.

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

    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

    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.

    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?

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

    I also like my standard black bumpers and black mirrors. Lots of the T4's I see with painted bumpers have big scrape and/or paint flaking off, and it looks bad.
    With you on that one DD textured black bumpers are much less scratch sensative to my mind.

    Rest assured the sparkle dont work for me. The van would look better with just flat blue,black bumpers and mirrors.
