Hi, thinking of changing the original wing mirrors as there is now an adapter plate to fit to original fixing points. Can anyone tell me how good this upgrade is and how suitable it is, thanks

Mirrors are brilliant The brackets I bought were from a seller on eBay and although very well made, could have done with being a bit longer away from the door as they sit on a slight angle. It doesn't matter or have any affect on functionality but it would look better if they lined up properly!!

Deffo a big improvement on the originals - might be worth getting some new seals as well:

^^ James Akers published a nice page on these. I would recommend a rubber shim between bracket and door.

Just done this upgrade and it's lovely to be able to move the arms as well as the mirrors to suit. I used 4 new seals and found this helped the bracket sit nicer on the door.
