Most cars built since the early eighties have mirrors attached to the doors, not the wing. So why do people keep looking for Cavalier, Astra etc. Wing Mirrors? :shake
I always thought we had door mirrors although some jap imports do come with wing mirrors.

:eh Really? TBH I don't think I have ever heard anyone call a door mirror a wing mirror - other than on here!

I do know if I went to a scrappy and asked for a wing mirror they would probably come back with some little round thing off a Morris Minor or something equally as old :lmao:
