even without seeing the picture i knew it would look gaudy. after seeing the picture, it looks gaudy.

1st gen yes, 3rd gen no unless you're talking ganador style on the door and not the fender.



i mean really, that picture above looks about as ******* lame as you can imagine. but someone will come on here and say "but that looks unique and we should be unique, i think it looks cool as hell!"

i'll save everyone else the time... shut the **** up, it looks like ****.

next... monster tach? case closed. in this particular case with his old mirror broken i can kind of understand but i wouldn't consider it an upgrade.


it also gives some asshat a nice thing to grab onto and yank off, ******* your nice little gay mirrors as well as your fender. i just expect **** like that to happen these days with all the Dbags running around in the world.

not even that! even cool people walking by will bump it.... my Tr3 has fender mirrors and they are useless, because they get bumped so easily. or to go the other way, i can aim them outside the car without checking, because i need to do it everytime i drive the thing

Just wondering why on earth would you want to move those to the front?? The extra little head movement that bad on you? Personally I believe you should be scanning your surroundings anyhow, not just zoned off infront of you..

Thats because Second gens are the Coolest Design. They are just TOO good looking for Fender mirrors. You can't touch the second Gen!
