    No experience of the Milenco ones.We've had the original Mirror Guards in the past. I know they're not cheap but much cheaper than replacing a mirror. I also think they add a touch of style.

    When we bought ours at the NEC, he showed me the milenco ones to illustrate the difference. The Milenco ones are very thin, but the MGs are sturdy and strong.

    I fitted Milenco ones to cover mirror damage and I have a pair of mirror guards as well. The Milenco are thinner but in my opinion are a more secure fit as they wrap around and have two screws to keep them in position. The Mirror Guards only stick on.

    Like Spidey we saw the Milenco & other cheaper copy of Mirror Guards on their stand at the NEC show - our conclusion is that you get what you pay for! So another vote for genuine Mirror Guards(y) None available (or planned) for Ford Transit mirrors though but they are much cheaper to replace than the Fiat ones.

    I have the MG, however I have noticed my temp gauge on the dash now reads 159 degree c on the readout (in other words very high temp all the time) maybe because I have a fiat with the temp sensor in the mirror casing and the MG are affecting this, anyone else have this problem before I contact the manufacture?

    This has also been mentioned on another forum as a 'problem' with them which has not yet been solved.
