    Question Side mirror alternatives?

    Anyone have any suggestions on replacement side mirrors?

    Drivers side is fine but the passenger mirror is almost useless. Half of the mirror is not visible due to the window frame. Yes I am short :P

    Same problem here. I swapped out the original mirrors with a pair of motorcycle mirrors. Tried a couple of different models. Thousands on Amazon. I liked a set that has integrated turn indicators.

    Another forum member had recommended these and I bought them and love them: Magazi Cleaver mirrors black aspherical 10mm fitting for Ariel Atom 2 3 3.5R V8 | eBay

    They are a little expensive but absolutely worth it. I could not be happier. And I can actually see now!!!

    I have a set of the Magazi as well. I think they are great, but expensive. The Amazon listing above looks very similar to the Magazi, but with integrated turn signals.

    I built my own using 350Z Nissan mirrors. I constructed the struts out of Aluminum and carbon. The cool thing is that I was able to wire a controller to the mirror motors and make them fully adjustable.
    At first they look a little big but I think they scale out very nicely on the Atom. The best thing is you can really see behind you!

    Here are the mirrors I purchased and installed. I am very happy with these. You can adjust them up or out as you need. In my case I needed to get them around the windshield and success!
