    opinions on mirrors

    should I revert back to my standard mirrors or stay with the dtm cups

    I like both but the standards do look good.

    most of the people that don't like mirrors the same as those, say its because you cant see anything out them, so aslong as you can see fine, i'd say keep them. They look really good actually!

    Is that you're only choices? not considering any different types of mirror?

    Don't like the DTMs at all, far too small. Only one that suits the Astra besides the OE mirrors are the Imscher ones and even those can be a bit of a pain to see out of.
    52 Astra G 1.8, 18" Mille Miglia alloys, 325mm Brembo 4 pot conversion, Coupe leather interior, Raid strut brace, Whiteline rear ARB, Irmscher bits (skirts, Carbon steering wheel, Bonnet extension, M3 mirrors, boot & roof spoiler), Reiger Rear Diffuser & Front Bumper, Koni Adj. dampers, 35/30 Vogtland springs, Duplex quad exit ASCAR stainless exhaust.

    Agreed, the normal price for them is ridiculous but this is rather tempting: http://www.lmfvauxhall.com/prodCatal...x=&deptIndex=0

    I'd have them on mine if I had the electric loom in place. They are the only ones I would even consider swapping the standard ones for. Those DTMs just don't look right imo
