    Default picked up a 55 1.8i vvt hatch a few days ago

    and am delighted with it - except for the door mirrors. Too small and narrow. Anyone know if there are proper replacements available? They would have to be fully electric and larger and wider.

    Do they look like the mirrors that are on the cars in the photos on this site?

    Pics would be a help. I always thought that the vec mirrors were quite large. You wanna try living with the In****nia mirrors.

    Well, there isn't anything on the back that say's vvti so perhaps I've got the ordinary 1.8. Hope this engine is going to be a good un.

    Yes, the mirrors look the same as pics on this site. Just have to get used to them I suppose. I'd put a pic up if I knew how to do it.
