Well, frankly I like the side mirrors on the EGT look goofy. Too utilitarian and not Euro-'nuff for me.

Has anyone tried replacing these with better looking models? What are the options? What about at least painting them? Pics?

if you just straight paint them, they look to oarang epeely. you have to sand them smooth which can be done, just use a hand sander.
i have 3rd gen mirrion on my 95 gt, need to drill a few holes and a littel wiring work. there is a how to on erdt. or you can run 1st gen protege they are supposed to be a direct fit and paint nicely!

90-94 Protege mirrors are direct bolt up. I am putting them on my car this next week in the last leg of body work I am doing. Wiring is identical too. They are rounder and yes they have the breakaway feature. I will post pics of my car when it is done either this week or next.

yes again like people have said 90-94 protege mirrors look way more euro than ours. but only the LX model. the others are more square similar to ours. i guess they dont fit perfect but they fit really pretty good. it is plug and play all the screws still work without drilling and it plugs right into our connection but again the triangle area to fill the corner of the door has a slightly different shape.
