Hello scimitarians,

I am looking for a side view mirror for a GTE6A. Who can help me out?
Hope to hear from you,
Kind regards,
Frederik

Hi Frederik, I believe, looking at your photo, you're looking for a left hand side mirror? Those are quite scarce as many cars didn't have them when new (my own yellow car doesn't). You may be better off looking for a matching pair of mirrors from a Jaguar XJS (NOT XJ6) which will fit and will match each other. It's quite a popular swap.

Frederik, Roger is talking about the original LH mirrors - of course you can fit anything for registration and change it later?

Agreed, I assumed (and assumptions pave the way to hell....... :roll: ) that you were looking for one to make up a matching pair :oops: If you just need one to satisfy legal requirements then finding one which will do the job shouldn't be a problem.

I have discovered that it is not required to have a left mirror on a rhd car to get a registration in the Netherlands. It is very handy to have one otherwise.
