Sector111 micro mirror in an Evora?


Recommended Posts

That's a lot of money for a mirror that doesn't even have anti-dazzle - essential for a car as low as the Elise imho.

I fitted a Mk1 Golf mirror. Bit of a pita to get on the Elise stalk (easy to break the windscreen getting it out of the car, and the mirror getting it off the Golf stalk and on the Elise one) but it looks far better than the original mirror. New one's are available for about £80 if you search around.

I might not even fit it!  Just take the old one off and put the new in the glovebox ready to go in case i get stopped whatever.  Got three years before the MOT anyway lol...

And the 410 has wing mirrors the size of an elephant compared to the S1's.

But then, having said that, i quite like watching the accelerator linkage thingy going up and down in the mirror on the 410. Never noticed it in the S1.

Argh, too many hard decisions in life... I need a beer.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

***Evora nerd alert***

I think that you’re actually looking at the vacuum actuator for the supercharger. So, your previous NA obviously wouldn’t have had one. For the Evora S, it’s on the other side of the engine, so not visible through the rear view mirror.

Thanks for that Jonny... :)

Here ya go Andy...

I know it's for a 2.0L and it's a slightly different layout, but basically, the actuator you see controls the waste gate/overflow when you're on/off throttle. When you are ON throttle, it closes the smaller butterfly valve and when you are off throttle it opens it. This means the boost is regulated.

Enjoyed that, thanks @CocoPops!

So, just to keep on track and stop the mods from getting over zealous, I think i might miss seeing that thingy going up and down so will be putting the micro mirror in the car!

Something to do while we wait to hear back from @Seriouslylotus! Thing is his 311 has arrived at Hoffman’s so I’m not surprised that he’s been a bit preoccupied!

Don't think you need one for MOT.  Mine passed last month without one.

I have decided that the rear view mirror in my Evora is too large and obstructs part of my forward vision . I find myself occasionally having to duck to get a better view.

Has anyone fitted the Sector 111 micro mirror or similar.

Sector111 used to have a smart CF micro mirror which fitted nicely to some of the early Elises.

I know there is a thread on this topic from a few years ago. However I was hoping for more up to date information.

Thanks

YES, and nothing else to watch back there

I’ve got one. From Hangar 111 iirc.

Not CF but ally.

I had it in my Exige 350 before but the Evora has the same mirror plinth so it went straight on.

Good mod. The standard mirror is unnecessarily huge for the size of the rear window.
