I was looking at the renault modus ones as suggested by Flyerncle but I think they may be a bit on the bulky side. Need to find a Modus to have a good look, quite a rare car though.

Yes they are fairly bulky and probably not to most peoples taste but they did look usable to me and had a sort of usefull look to them as well as having the repeater in them and the fact they bolt flat to the panel looked good too and they would comply with requirement to fold.

Hi Dan,

I too wanted to fit the repeaters on the scuttle & like yourself had heard some 7 style cars were failing IVA having them fitted there.............I also don,t like the look of them fitted on the front cycle wings.

so

I,ve fitted mine on the forward leading edge ( they need to be within 2.6mtrs from the front of the car or there abouts, dims are in the IVA manual )of the rear wings, I admit, this wouldn,t be my first choice of position but it WILL ensure they won,t fail that part of the IVA test.

When i first fitted them I thought they looked a bit naff but now i,m used to them you actually can,t really notice them.

just a thought

cheers
andy

Thanks for that Andy,

I'll have a look at that tomorrow, must admit though im swaying toward having them part of the mirrors. Just gotta find the rite ones, I know somebody has mentioned m and p as a supplier but im pretty sure their place down in Swansea burnt down recently

Most motorcycles have them fitted so maybe worth a scan around a bike shop to see how they would mount and if they tickle your fancy. GSXR ones are not bad.

Default side repeaters/mirrors

I've been looking for bike mirrors but most of them are not visible from the required rear angle the only ones I have found that look suitable are these


http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

and they look as though the indicators are visible from behind.

I've been looking as well Jon and have found the same, the indicators on bike mirrors are to replace the stalk type front indicators. I can't open your link for some reason.

Im pretty the saturn demo car has indicator mirrors, maybe I will send spud a message.

This one looks quite neat but have not seen one in the flesh yet. Thought that the flat side might cut in flush on the scuttle !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have just had a look at spuds car on his page and the mirrors have got indicators but they are not visible from the rear and if I remember correctly spud did tell me when he took me for a test drive that they were only for show.

Try this item number on www.ebay.de

230653918069

These look as though they wrap round far enough to be seen from behind.
