    Mirrors?

    Im planning on getting new mirrors and hopefully getting them fitted in time for trax. Can anyone recommend any, I have been looking at M3 and DTM any more on the market atm.


    Cheers Kev

    To be honest I think the best mirrors you can get for the G are the ones that they come with! If I had to chose between M3 ones and DTM ones I'd go M3 cos I dont think the DTM ones really suit the car all that well.

    Just my opinion though, and as everyone knows, I am "mr standard" so my opinions rarely count for much!

    And DTMs are pretty poor made, you can't see much out of the passenger one, and the bolts provided aren't thick enough to hold the mirrors, so i had to put them wall plug things in mine to hold the screws it.
    Saying that though i ain't really a fan of M3s
    My mk3,117K, and the engine is still going strong
    shame about the car shell tho,lol.

    Deffinatelly a fan of the standard mirrors, I have thought of buying aftermarket so many time as its a fairly cheap mod, but small mirrors dont suit the astra!

    I looked around for ages for chrome mirrors that were both electric and heated, but there don't seem to be any aftermarket ones that are heated as well, so I ended up getting the Irmscher chrome covers for the standard mirrors - very nicey indeedy!

    Go to Nienhaus and they are much cheaper too!
