The Milenco ones are less than half the price of the mirror guards. Do you think there is much difference?

I looked at both at the Show. I took photos and will be writing a review later this month. Suffice for now to say that the Milenco version looks like it will offer no protection at all. Its flimsy and has no padding. If the Milenco were a 10th of the price IMO it would still not be worth it.

Just a thought, but do funsters get a discount with mirror guards?

My sister clipped mirrors with a Dutch rental van in France last year, they agreed to pay for their own damage but it was bloody expensive!!!

On the strength of this, I fitted a pair of mirror guards last week, they do look pretty substantial and they also look pretty good too.

Bought a pair of mirror guards at Peterborough, they might be expensive but give piece of mind which to me is priceless. :thumb:
