The mirrors dont fit. I did some heavy-duty cutting already, still needs more work... Maybe Ill have the body shop do the rest of the work with the paintjob in a couple of weeks...

mad

They dont fit for nothing. I put the old mirrors back for now, before I do any serious damage to the M3 mirrors or the door, Ill have the body shop play with them...

Ive only seen Mikals, Kryssys, and Mike Baxters probe with these mirrors so I dont know what your talking about DJ...

i've seen krysy's and one other car.

my verdict: not impressed. at least not enough to go and buy a set. for my $$, i would like a set of 95 side mirrors, rather than my set of 93's.

Thumbs down

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!! My M3 mirrors are ON! I went ahead and did it myself... it took me two days and about 15 hours to make them fit... :eek: Yeah, I was EXTREMELY pissed, these were supposed to be made to fit Probes. I dont know why, but I could have just picked up any mirror and it would have been probably easier...

I ended up making a custom bracket... I had to cut the base almost all the way down, than I cut a metal plate that I turned into a bracket because the bolts were all about 1.5-2" off... Whoever made them should install one as a punishment.

IT just made me think about how easy it is for civic owners to hook up their cars... They just buy the mirrors and bolt them on, while I buy the mirrors, spend weeks thinking about how to make them fit, and than it ends up taking 2 days and about 15 hours of actual work to do it... Im seriously thinking about getting a 92-95 civic hatchback for daily driver instead of another PGT... Ok, maybe you can tell, Im just really pissed right about now, but Im done venting...

P.S.: If you dont want M3 mirrors like REAL bad, do yourself a favor and dont buy these... Just in case you still need to be warned after reading this post...

Yeah, but that's just another point we can bash them on! :p

You know, "well geez, you don't even have to work at it, here's what I did to get this done..."

There's satisfaction after it all comes together and you know just how hard you thought & worked to make it happen.
