No I didn't, however this isnt the 28mm steeda, its 22mm iirc.. I heard that anything bigger than the eibach rear bar (25mm) would require them to prevent them from breaking

Little bit of an update: brand new svt mirrors! Just installed the mirror caps after 3 coats of paint, and 3 coats of clear.



Will do a small buff and polish to them in a few.

They definitely looked nice but the output of light isn't half as great as these Machs. They were better than the regular focus headlights, but nothing compared to these. The Machs however to me I feel are better looking.

Also, these new svt mirrors are lovely. They really make the OEM textured mirrors feel like crap! There heated (when rear defrosters on, they become heated) , and the whole mirror is glossy and not textured whatsoever. The folding like I've said before is such a beautiful thing for me.

I don't want to spoil the surprise but I nay do a full svt conversion! Including drive train and transmission. Being that my spi has only 31k on it, a owner of a shop that I know well told me he'd take it before 40k and get new upgraded valve seats and give me 2k for it! Who knows, I make take the offer and convert this baby! Money isnt the issue, its the time..

Very nice mirrors.

I agree with you on the folding mirror part. They are a god send especially when sitting in a collage parking lot with a bunch of kids always running into your mirrors when they are late for class.

And that conversion idea sound awesome. A lot of work, but still awesome if you can make it happen.

Wow you have made some serious progress. I don't usually like white cars, but you have made me rethink that. Looks great!
