More bling

They look zoomy, better wind resistance, and weigh less than 1/2 of the the flag mirrors they replaced:

Looks great. I did the same upgrade...did you do manual or power? If power, it was fun getting the wiring straight, huh? Now I'm looking for some (black) 993 door handles. Got any leads?

I bought them in '01 with my PCA discount coupon. I opted for the manual version. They were a royal pain to assemble; the trick was to leave off one of the black spacers on the spring assembly. There's still lots of tension, so I don't know why the extra one was needed.

You aren't kidding when you talk about enought tension. They look good, well worth the trouble and expense but there must be an easier way to put the assembly together.

With all respect, allow me to disagree. I prefer the flag mirrors. They look and are more period correct... but that's only a p.p. (personal preference). And, of course, "half the weight" is half an argument, I agree!

Technically, that's true - they used the flag mirrors all the way up to what, 92 or so? About the only thing "period correct" on my car would be the windshield frame

but that's only a p.p. (personal preference). And, of course, "half the weight" is half an argument, I agree!

That isn't an argument, that's just contradiction!
The heavy bit on the aero mirrors are the cast pot-metal bases. You could put one of these in a sock and kill someone! Why couldn't they use aluminum?
