    as you all probably know, pre-facelift models were all fitted with the shorter wing mirror on the passenger side (still dont know why they did such a moronic thing).

    i would like to fit a "normal" one, like the one on the driver's side. mind you, in my country, we drive on the right side of the road, meaning drivers sit on the left side of the car, ergo i need a right side wing mirror. now, 2 questions:

    1.) does anyone know where i could get the opposite side mirror with the normal length? it also needs to be in the right color (it seems like it is quite rare, sort of cactus green)

    2.) is it even possible to swap it and are there any DIY on how its done?

    thank you in advance

    vw do this a lot, japan get two small mirrors on some vw models , all you need is a uk drivers mirror off ebay that would be full size on your passenger door

    now i think about it my mates ibiza had a small mirror on the near side he wanted a matching small one for the drivers side some lupo's have small and small , something to do with being city cars

    Very strange, looks rediculous to me. Can't blame you for wanting a normal sized one.
