    That's about it for the Coupe. There aren't any RHD Irmscher mirrors so there is no blind-spot bend. Plus they're damn small!

    I've been through this process myself, but personally for the coupe I don't think that any of the after market ones that I've seen suit the lines of the coupe at all.

    The other issue is that I couldn't find any that were heated and electric control as well, so I opted for the below as they give the best of both worlds, retaining both the look of the originals and the operation. Expensive for a couple of bits of chrome look pastic, but they are around £70 from Nienhaus, and cheaper than any decent aftermarket ones that I looked at. Just my opinion.

    Mirrors for the coupe are still a nightmare from what I know. RJ tried to get a set of Lumma through Regal and got sent the wrong ones 3 times!!!

    iirc steinmetz do heated/electris RHD mirrors for the coupe, also I would have though FK do by now.

    I hope that helps.
