Default best "knock-off" spoon side mirrors....

Just picked up a 2000 ex 4dr looking for spoon style mirrors power, seen some pretty crappy copies out there where the mirror don't even fit the housing. I first bought some ctr power mirrors OEM came painted champion white from Honda Japan. Still brand new in the box want to sale them or trade them for real spoon power mirrors. Might take a while for a buyer for the ctr mirrors so the mean time i want to find the best copy of the spoons

My honest to god suggestion, stay away from the spoon and the spoon knockoffs if you want to use your mirrors at all. They're horrible.

The only good thing about them is that they look good and they're light. Other than that.. I can't see **** but the curb on my passenger side Spoon knock-off.

I have TYC POWERED spoon knock off mirrors. Visibility is fine, since you get full adjustment of the mirrors. However, the only thing I had to get used to was that the driver side mirror was convex as well. Fits just fine. However, they dont' look as good as the non powered, the design of the mirror is a bit different. You can see how the mirror base is not as flat as the non powered ones.

Are you unable to move the glass manually????

I had M3 "style" mirrors on my old hatch n they were able to be adjusted, Usually
with the help from a friend or anyone standing near your mirror at the time

Mine adjust fine. Still not the greatest visibility, but no blind spots.

You can move the glass, but I put the glass on before I put the mirrors on my car and the glass can move only so far now. It scrapes the plastic on the inside of the mirror and the glass won't move anymore. If I would've put the glass on after I installed the mirrors, then I probably could've installed the glass in the right place.

Exactly what I did with mine. I ended up breaking the glass really bad and cutting myself trying to adjust them worth a ****.

Go compare a 96+ coupe/hatch mirror to a 4 door mirror and you will see.
