Hey Nick, how's the shiny one progressing?
Finally fitted a cheap UK mirror from ebay in place of your kindly loaned piece!
Blue tinted, heated but not electrochromatic and a pain to remove the old failed mirror, had to break it in to smitherines...
Thanks again and if anyone needs a help out for a temporary RHD passenger side mirror it's on it's way to you.

Awesome stuff!

Have all the engine problems been sorted yet (mainly vanos) or is the saga still ongoing?

Please don't post pics. I'd probably be very jealous.
