    Alright guys bassically ive been offered a set of dumbos, just what im after at the perfect price, only problem being they're 5 door so my question is will they fit a 3 door?
    I did check my etka at home and couldnt even find wingmirors :( almost made myself late too in doing so

    There was a thread on here recently where someone fitted a 3 door set on a 5 door so it looks like it's a common fitting

    Phil, Scotties went on with minor tweaking. These should go on yours with the same. Least if they are way out you can sell on! Go for it! You need new mirrors lol :yes:

    Aw! its a shame you're not more central, we could all lend a hand then! That would get it done alot faster!!! (Not saying it would be the quality you'd want though lol)
