    As per the title anyone got any images of these? Looking to change my UK ones to something a little different and wondered if both side have the smaller angled mirror built in?

    Do they move separate to the main mirror?

    Nope they are part of the mirror all one piece ;)

    US and EU mirror housings are different and the EU side mirrors are not DOT compliant. They are too small and something about the feds not liking the curved blind spot feature. This was the case with the 2011 Fiesta development for the US market and I doubt anything has changed since.

    I have just bought some wing mirror covers from the US so I hope they fit before I get them sprayed.

    So my US mirror caps arrived last week and just got back from the body shop and they didn't fit! Anyone got any pictures of the US wiring connector for the wing mirror so I can see if it's the same as the UK one?

    The wing mirrors are different but interchangeable. If you wanted to run US mirrors on your car, you could, but there are a few issues, like the convex mirror being on opposite sides, etc. Also, I believe that your mirrors have LEDs for the blinkers in the mirror which the US mirrors don't have.

    No, uk bulbs are just normal ones. When I looked at American car parts prices one side was more than the other, so though there may be a difference with the drivers side adjustment being in a different place. Or worse if the controls moved the mirrors to opposite directions!

    Do the US ones not just have those little mirrors on both sides?

    The smaller blind spot mirrors are on both sides of the US cars.
