Yeh I know, but its the 'at a price' bit that worries me !! I can get a German one delivered for about 25 - 30 squid !!

Are the R32 ones the same ??? Might try a scrappy.

175mm = Standard width

150mm = R32 / Anniversary width

125mm = Stubby width, inc Jap and most European passenger side mirror (our driver's side)

I paid about ?110 delivered for my Jap passenger side from ebay Germany I'll try and dig the seller's name out. Shaq will get you one for a good price though and if I bought another I'd go to him [:)]

I painted these myself and I went through an MOT no problems. Driver side's not that easy to see out of when you're used to normal mirrors but you get used to it [y]

Jammy,

You will need a German spec passenger side (UK Drivers side) and a Jap spec passenger side (UK passenger side). German ones are on Ebay.de try a search for VW Golf 4 spiegel, you then need a rechts (right) side.

probably a stupid question, but why do you need different spec mirrors i.e one jap on german? Do they not make driver and passenger jap or german spec mirrors?

seems odd to me

Left and right side mirror housings are also "bent in" different amounts depending on whether they are for left or right hand drive fitments.

Do you have any issues with this? i.e. mirror glass at maximum extension one way to get correct view out of it etc. It looks like the drivers mirror in above photo is adjusted right out.

Also can you get blue tinted lenses and also an aspherical (split) mirror for the RHD drivers side?

They look hawt.
