Thanks JM & pputkowski...

I know your 935 mirrors are potentially useless.. however, they do fit the lines of the car so well. And of course the factory mirror holes have been filled and the doors/or car repainted so the re-drill for fitment of stock mirrors won't be fun.

I am in the process of adding the 993 aero mirrors to my car as they fit the lines of the slantnose better than the stock flag mirrors currently in place. If my car needed paint, I would probably fill the doors and go with what you have.. the 935 mirrors.

Again, welcome aboard and enjoy the ride!!

On second thought, I'd leave the 935 sides and the rims. The side mirrors would be too much of an undertaking. Re the fuchs, tires have become impossible to find, so sooner or later anyone who drives their car is gonna be changing rims anyway. Leave it, enjoy it!
Re non factory 505 cars, I think that a dealer conversion is the next best thing to factory original, not the same but close. The ones to avoid are the aftermarket fiberglass kits.

I got my 935 mirrors to work fine. I swapped out the flat mirror on the passenger side with a convex one, and use a slightly larger interior rear view mirror. I have a good rear view with no blind spots.
If your going back to Fuchs I'd go with 17's. That being said your wheels look fine. Great looking car!

Thanks for the tip, the convex mirror is a good idea. Do you have a photo of your mirror that you could share?

I love my wheels. I realy like the Fuch's, but I wouldn't swap mine out, unless I was trying to sell the car.

Not sure what you wanted a photo of.
Here is a link to the convex mirror.

The Vitaloni Sebring mirror is the same mirror as the 935.
The mirrors are adjustable. Mine were frozen. The metal cup spring & screw had surface rust preventing adjusting it. I ended up taking the mirror housing off the car (silicone sealed to the fixed vent window), cleaning the rust and replacing the passenger side mirror.

Thanks. We're you able to keep your stock 935 housing and just replace the glass and mechanicals, or did you swap out the complete unit? I want to keep my outer housing intact as it is painted to match the rest of the car.

Yes, I just replaced the mirror and hardware, not the housings.
