    Hi there,

    Just had a little venture out this week and a truck took exception to my passenger side mirror. Result both glasses smashed but luckily they stayed on the mirror head by the wires for the heating elements!
    Anyone know where to pick up the mirror glasses?
    I've got a spare flat glass it's just the convex one that seems hard to find.

    Thanks for any help or info. :winky:

    .....thanks Old-Mo for digging that out!

    Who is Lindy-C are they a dealer/spares stockist in the UK?

    I'm only looking for a replacement glass for the bottom part of a 2025 mirror which is the convex/blindspot mirror. But the idea of a slightly convex upper glass seems a good idea. It's a nightmare pulling out onto a slip road as most things are right up there with you by the time you see them or fiddle with the electric adjust to alter your view.

    Anyone seen any mirrors that give you a view of the front corner RHS to ease manoeuvring in tight sidestreets?

    Thanks for your reply, have a good BH weekend!:winky:

    Hi I had to get a whole new mirror, arm, and housing. I went onto the velvac web site to identify the exact mirror that I needed. The Velvac web site is a good one. I could have bought directley from Velvac but found a stockist down Wiltshire way.

    I cant remeber their name but I will have a look through the day. The mirror that I bought has a convex square in the bottom right hand corner and its great for seeeing things that you cant see with a flat mirror.

    This is the place, a search doesnt show any mirrors but If you give them a ring Ozzie in the stores has all soughts there. http://www.abp-accessories.co.uk/productindi.php?id=1611
