"whoah" (as keanu aka "neo" would say). 1 part of the gt300 package, hmmm? many people in norcal stated the Mirrors weren't for them but seeing it on an actual privately owned car looks cool. thumbsup

The Mirrors are courtesy of APR. We are doing a review and install guide for them. thumbsup

It does take a little getting used to, but I can drive with them just fine. smile

The Mirrors do look small compared to stock. But, they give the car that "neo-classic" look. grin

i got them with my kit, and i put them on yesterday, i agree it takes a while to get used to because they are small and both Mirrors make objects smaller than they are, unlike the stock ones that just make the right side smaller, but they do look sweet, the install was easy.


GT300 body kit on, getting fitted, doing install myself.
pics comin as soon as my kit is here and painted...

Honestly? I don't like them. They don't look like they belong on a Celica; just way out of proportion against the rest of the car, in my opinion.

Yea, I'm not a very big fan of them either. But if you like it, then awesome. I like the rest of your ride. That black stripe flows well with the car. thumbsup

I think they look too small...

Plus, I need a power Mirror because I have to back into this little tiny space at work and there is a 2 foot drop behind, and I need to tilt down both side to look back sinceI don't want to drive my car off the edge and f*ck it up.

they look pretty cool but i think it would look better if you had everything else carbon fiber like the Hood, wing, and some interior stuff just to compliment the Mirrors but overall they are pretty pimp.

I agree that they would look a lot better if the rest of the car had other carbon fiber parts to compliment the Mirrors. I saw this celica parked on my street...carbon fiber Hood, carbon fiber wing, a bunch of carbon fiber interior parts, and the carbon fiber Mirrors. and it looked niiiiiiiiice...however, I do also have a problem with the fact that they're so small and also that they aren't power. I just don't think it's worth it, even if it does look tight, give weight reduction and better for aerodynamics...just what I think, but if you like it, then it's all gravy.
