Further to this post http://www.subaruforester.org/vbulletin/f75/heated-wing-mirrors-replacing-glass-58300/

it is now MOT time (in a month or so) and rather than just replace the glass that's broken I thoguht about upgrading the wing mirrors on the SF5 to any of the 3 (?) SG designs. I've had a good look at the doors and pillars on the SG when I was in Oz and they are the same as far as I can tell - frameless windows and the same shaped mirror 'bracket' section. I would be particularly keen to replace them with the big, square 05/06(?) type with integral side repeater.

I always thought the wing mirrors on the SF5 Foz were a little feeble and not what I expected at all (and no folding!!!!)

Has anyone done this mod above and / or can anyone put forward opinions before I attack it! I have had a good nose through the SFOF and found nowt, but yet to get over to the other scooby sites....

Cheers me dears!

Thought about trying this ages ago, but they might look like elephant ears. Keep us posted.

I know mate. I miss the big mirrors on the HR-V (about the ONLY thing I do miss!)

Oh, that and the leather! And the FOLDING MIRRORS :)))))

Never bothered in the end as I smacked one in a car park and just bought a replacement as I decided about that time that X124 was gonna be a stocker :)

Would like to see how it turns out on other member's cars though, SF, SG or otherwise!
