Hi .orgers

 

I'm sure it MUST have been discussed previously but I've tried searching and can't see anything anywhere...

 

Can anyone help with suggestions for replacements?  Are the S2 mirrors are a direct swap (no mods.)

 

Anything else around?

 

All help gratefully received.  :D

 

Cheers

Look at mirrors doing a search on here. I am sure metro mirrors were the same?

Metro, or I think it was GiGo that used heated MGF mirrors

Thanks Chaps.  I'm thinking of something to give a slightly different look without resorting to Dremels, fibreglass, etc.

 

Haven't found anything other than carbon shells  :sleep:

If you want to swap them over inc the plinths to get that vent hole then no, you have to mod the S2 plinth.  It is a very simple mod though, you just have to sand a small bit off the bottom to clear the shape of the door. (best to do this before paint!)

Thanks.  I quite like the S2 mirrors.

Gives a little wider field of view through the rear-view mirrors too as the Elise plinths are a little longer compared to the original VX/Speedster ones.

 

As the mirrors are mounted a tad more 'outward' on the car, visibility to the rear is less obscured by the rear quarter of the car compared to the original mirror location.

 

Not a huge difference, but just a little better/broader visibility to the rear.

 

Bye, Arno.
