Default Wingmirror/indicator combo?

Anyone use wingmirros with indicators built in to meet the criteria for the IVA? I have just realized i have bit of a problem and only have rear and front indicators and think i will need a middle set. Bugger!

There was some talk of this before but I think it was to do with the visibility of the indicator
I used button led ones on the outside edge of the front cycle wings and passed no problem with them

From memory I think most have little repeaters on the front top edge of the rear arch. Always seemed daft because they weren't even at the highest point but I was something to do with measurements from a certain point at the front so the top/middle of rear arch is too far back!! I was going to put some on the side of the scuttle but think there was a reason why it wouldn't pass Iva. No reason not to go with them after Iva though

On the body side or on the scuttle side they are blocked from view by the rear arches when viewed from the lower rear test
I believe some folk have used the self adhesive ones on the front wings and changed them afterwards, but this would be open to interpretation by the tester to if they are a "permanent" fitting for the purpose of the test
