* Distortion free optics
* Larger mirror surface than the original
* One mirror is enough - no need for additional wing mirrors.
We're all for originality, but a slightly larger rearview mirror makes a nice difference, especially if you have no wing mirrors or frequently use your car with a top (the bottom/back of the top tends to limit your rearward view-this mirror helps). This mirror is slightly larger than the original.
We've posted a few pictures comparing this product to an original Sprite rearview mirror. You can see this new one is just a bit bigger, and measures about 6 x 2.5 inches (see photos with tape measure).
The mirrored surface is also better quality than what we have found on the smaller reproduction Sprite mirrors. Those tend to suffer from increased distortion issues. You'll find better distortion-free optics with this product.
This is the mirror I use on my personal Bugeye Gumby, with just one bullet mirror on the driver side, and it affords enough extra visibility.
This is a highly recommended upgrade and while not technically correct it still looks right and will help improve your visibility of your surroundings while driving your Sprite.
On most cars, these mirrors don't quite fit when installed on a Sprite dashboard. To address this, we like to use a stepped drill and enlarge each hole on the mirror base and then the mirror base will nicely fit your threaded holes on your dashboard.
