    Wing mirrors

    How easy is it to fit these M3 style Wingmirrors? :?

    Are the base plates a good fit? :?

    Any recommendations?

    Cheers

    piece of piss mate.

    Take the small triangular piece of plastic trim from the door its held on with 3 small poppers, these might break so be careful, altho they are like 20p each from vauxhall.
    Undo the 3 screws on the back and the mirror will drop off.

    Then mount the new mirrors to the new base plates, and secure to the car with the 3 screws u just took the old mirrors off with. Simple

    Are these M3 style mirrors Irmscher ones? Its just I was looking at getting them, but am not sure if you can fold them back like normal Astra ones. Its just I have started putting the car in the garage and to get it through the door the mirrors have to be bent back.
