Mirrors

So my paint guys dropped my mirror and it broke...

Need a new set, who's using what and can anyone recommend a set? I'm looking on amazon and ebay but wary of anything cheap. I also don't need the integrated light ones.

So far these are the ones I will probably get.




Has just realized that I don't care what it costs until I get the bill! :roll eyes: ...

I got a set of Targa mirrors. Not as easy to find nowdays, but I love the look.

Agree with JAM: Emgo mirrors are the go-to cheapie replacement mirrors for me. Not great quality, just ok.
(Believe me - I've had to replace more mirrors than I care to admit )
I got a set of really nice OEM's off the classifieds on this forum, but it took a little waiting for them to come up.

I bought a OE replacement off Ebay and was not happy at all with the quality. The lense was plastic and distorted around the edges and overall molding was very poor. I ended up just biting the bullet and getting a replacement from Honda. Used OE Honda would be my first choice if want sock style.

This might be the better option, if you guys agree on price.
I found the OEM's to have a much better quality mirror, clearer. And they hold the set better than the Emgo's.
