I just bought this and it's not what I wanted. Maybe it's what you want!

NEW Vitaloni side mirror. Mounts flat. Black Plastic. Perfect. I think these were popular on Europas.

$60 shipped US.

Ted,

It's kind of a long story as to why it's not what I wanted.......

The side mirror on my S1 Elan is a Vitaloni but it has a little bracket that moves the mirror part about an inch off the body. It is painted red to match the color of the car. It started to come loose and to tighten it up I had to remove the glass part from the mirror. It cracked. I thought I could buy this mirror just for the glass part. It is of a slightly different shape so it is of no use to me.

I have subsequently found a glass shop to cut me a new mirror piece. Something I should have tried in the first place.
