Rather enjoyed my morning cortado in the car...

Just when you think you've lived long enough to know everything, you run across a gem like this one. I love this place. Learn something new every day.B-)

Soon you'll be graduating to a double Ristretto. And the cup holder that goes with it.<_<

Very funny Rancid. Cup holder plus 2 airbags and a visual improvement as well! Good product! :lol: 

 

Group buy?:)

Being second is to be the first of the ones who lose.

The factory units are about 3.5lbs for the set, the TransForged set weighs in at less than 1lb.

How do the old mirrors come off? Had a look today, but the window seal covers most of the holes, well looks like it :lol:

There are two of No.6 per side, four in total. They just didn't show them all to keep the diagram simple. I had the same odd thought, then checked the parts list under the diagram on Deroure's page, then it made sense.

I just saw my mirrors get disassembled as I complained to the dealer that they fold in towards the car at around 180kph and I'm unable to see anything. Upon closer inspection though, we saw that there was really nothing you can do to tighten it, so we just returned it back. Looks like I'll just wait for my order from Mick!

Bummer!

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

@Ex Londoner I feel you could really help contribute to the community with a good cup holder solution. The Lotus one seemed a good solution but now appears to be as rare as rocking horse sh*t.

Added weight :(

Ryan, I experimented 230kph in the roadster (on the Hunaudières straight :blush:), and the mirrors stayed corrected settled ...  Strange that yours are folding ! But as said, it is a good excuse to move to the Transforged ones :lol: !

Argh, I wish I had yours! I find myself letting go of the gas at 180 because I can't bother to move both again. Anyway definitely makes me look forward to the TF pair!

Degrease the springs with brake cleaner, that should do the trick.

 

On the other hand... I do have these V1's from Mick in my garage waiting for me to install them ;-)

So, Mick @Ex Londoner, what is the length of the V2 setup from plinth to tip of mirror shroud?

Marty the total length of the Version 2s is 12".  Remember the mirror is convex glass and provides a very good visual.  Here's a few pics from several months ago during my prototyping.

With each order we're planning to send smaller plastic flat caps to insert in those holes.  You'll notice that the holes prior to wing mirror removal/install include black stickers, that when removed are difficult to replace.

And maybe something for the top hole on the outside?
