Default SVA friendly wing mirrors

Hi all.
I guess I'm being lazy but what wing mirrors are people using that are SVA friendly.

I used the furore e-marked mirrors:

Nice and cheap, and IVA man was impressed with them.

Only downside is that they appear to be the same ones that are fitted to my Dad's mobility scooter

I got the very cheap (12 or 13 IIRC) mirrors that CBS do (CBS sell them as IVA friendly). They look like Rover Metro/Fiat Cinquecento mirrors and should do the job nicely.

I got a pair of m/cycle mirrors with no e's.They were ok for reflective area and just about ok for positioning (fix them higher rather than lower ie nearer the apex of your scuttle so you can see over the top of your wheel arches)but failed on edges not radiused enough ( I've just made a pair of boots from cv boots)

I've tried to kill two birds with one stone, I bought mine from Europa spares with the built in indicators.
I looked at the little button repeaters that fit into either the cycle wings or rear arches and just didn't like them so that's what made me buy the ones I did, think I paid around 48 at Newark show.
Hope that's of some help

Can you see the side repeaters on the mirrors from the rear as I think thats one of the main problems with mounting them on the scuttle?

Cheers
