    Mk5 3dr/5dr wing mirror difference?

    Hi all,
    I have an 07 SRi Sporthatch and need a replacement n/s door wing mirror unit (complete mirror not just the colour-coded plastic back piece). Looked on Ebay; Auto Vaux; Vaux all; LMF etc for a replacement, and found many mirrors – but they all seem to state that they’re for the 5dr models only. Can anyone tell me definitively if there’s a difference between a mirror unit for a 5dr and a mirror unit for a 3dr?

    My car looks a mess at the mo as the mirror is currently held together with grey duct tape and I just want to get a replacement as soon as pos.

    Cheers
    Mark H.

    Hello mate and welcome.
    not 100% sure on this but think it has some thing to do with the curviture of the window as a 3dr has a longer door than the 5dr.

    That’s what I thought as well, I’ll compare mine to a 5dr when I’m out n about later. It frustrating as I can’t find a wing mirror unit specifically for a 3dr on the web and I’m loathed to go to a main dealer where I've been quoted approx 200 quid for a new one
