Default APC Roadvision M3 Mirrors

Distributor: Vendio.com
Vehicle:96-00 2/3Dr Civics
Cost:$19 shipped
Installation:Required a socket wrench + extension, was very easy, just pop off the little plate in the corner of your window and then it was three bolts.The ebay cheapies i had before this were actaully easier to install becasue instead of the bolts, it was three screws. The way the mirrors sit makes it hard for a socket wrench to get back in there but a screw driver fits perfect. It just took a little longer butthey fit perfect.
Installation Time:10 minutes
Review: Got a great deal on them. These APC's actually are alot better than the ebay ones. With the ebays, they didnt seal perfectly and when i would go through the car wash or drive in the rain, water would leak in. The APC's have a foam/rubber seal around them that stops all the water from coming in. Also with the Ebays, the passenger side mirrors was warped. With the APCs, both mirrors are perfect, they are tinted blue (which stops bright beams from hurting your eyes), and they also have the "OBJECTS IN MIRROR ARE CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR" on them. Totally worth it. A very cheap upgrade that isnt rice because theyre just solid black w/o LEDs, instead of the fake CF with blue LEDs.

The new mirrors:

nice, looks much better without the led imo, good choice. Just curious are they powered or manual mirrors?

manual, and to adjust them you hvae to roll the window down and adjust them with your hand, which is inconvenient and gets finger prints on the mirrors lol but its a small thingto complain about, i'm REALLY happy witht them.

i found mine on ebay, just searched M3 mirrors and these came up, it wasnt a generic ebay cheapo auction either, it was from a more private seller. Again, the quality is noticabely better htan the generic ebays, i love these
