Once I get done with my projector headlights I'm gonna make an extension to the stock side mirrors to incorporate the mercedes style turn signals on them..

M3 mirrors

You can get M3 mirrors that are designed for a civic to fit the MX6, all it takes is small altercations to teh outer plastic piece that would fit in place. It's not much modification, I sell them here in Toronto at my shop so I've seen how they work first hand. You can try it out, but I'm sure they'll fit.

Not that it would help or anything, but i just had my car repainted and redid the side mirors in black with the body white, i liek it a lot. Just a suggestion for people with all the same color.

I am not the mod master but they said the 93 will fit and if these are the same specs they should fit. Also since they do fit the celicas of 93 then if they are not a direct fit they should only need slight mods to get them to work. Please dont quote me on this as i am not 100% sure.

One of the other modders here will be able to give you a better answer.

from my experimenting with mirrors, you will never find a mirror that will give you the same view as the stock ones. engineers spent hours designing mirrors that will sit at the best angle for a reason. No to discourage anyone, this is just my experience. Did you know some jdm mx6's have the same mirrors as mx3's but with different mounting brackets- i know i found out the hard way. you never get the same view.

slient-did you know that you can move the mirror and angle in different ways to get the view you want
yea i'm pretty familiar with that feature which most modern cars are equipped with. I meant the angle of the entire assembly....pardon my sarcasm.
