    Question Electric mirrors - Original, or is 3rd Party ok?

    Hi,

    I've got M3-Style electric mirrors on the car at the moment and want to change back to original Vauxhall ones. Has anyone had experience in using the Astra G copy pre-primed electric mirrors that are being sold by a number of companies for around £40 each?
    Just wondering whether to settle for these, or go on a scrap yard hunt for some genuine ones...

    Cheers

    Hi

    Got one off eBay and it seemed to be fine, took the paint okay. Must admit I never actually got round to fitting it though!!

    Try the scrappy, you will pay less and you might even be able to get ones in the right colour.

    I needed a single mirror (van man ) and bought one of ebay.

    The mirror unit itself you couldnt tell any difference. Fixings are perfect placement. Mirror glass is fine, motor also worked spot on.

    However, the primer cover that came with it all the plastic clips were snapped off.

    I just glued it on after i got it sprayed up. Not a great fit but really cant tell.
