What the Title. says. I'm looking for either the set of two or at least just the drivers side in black. Please message me if you have them and what your price would be! Thanks!

No factory they don't but they made a bigger set in a small time frame do to having to comply with some of the new European laws that came into play.

I'm not sure. all I know is that its from GM Europe. It was released just for short amount of time too because thats when saturn went out of business so they stopped making the car

Ok Ryan, here it is, I bought my car from Germany in 2009 from Berlin, they had over 20-30 cars on the lot, all were same, the dealer told me that they can sell it to a discounted price because Adam Opel Gmbh (the only client for Opel GT - not GM Europe) wants to get rid of the whole remaining lot fast because the factory is closing (it was spring 2009) and I never saw or heard about any 2010 Opel GT. So anything produced before that is same as mine.

A lot of 20-30 Opel GTs means same amount as I could count in my whole country, I presume they are a lot more in Germany, Greece, Italy and maybe Spain.

During the years I had the chance to speak with most of the owners from my country and some others from Europe and even see some of their cars, all have same mirrors.

To finalize, one of my friends, some of the people from here met him in person even ordered the mirror glass from US and guess what, they are same dimension and fit the housing and mounting. The glass from US is better than the one from factory for Opel GT, you can see more angle.

I was aware about this rumor and I kept checking for a time but my conclusion is that they are same, until I don't see anything clear I will keep my opinion.

Normal mirrors that came on basically every other car:



The bigger mirrors that I'm talking about:


Do you see the difference? The factory ones look like little shrek ears that are completely vertical from where the sit on the door, where the bigger looking bug mirrors slant and stick out farther. Now I may be wrong in stating that they might have come on some cars, but with that being said I know for a fact that it was a part that could have at least been bought for the folks over in germany after some new traffic laws went into effect.

I never saw such mirrors in Opel GT. I am referring to the grey Sky.

Here are all Opel GT for sale, the site is biggest in Europe for car sales:

Let me know if you find any GT with those mirrors.

Like I said it may not be on a car from the factory, it may just be a part that you could have picked up from the dealership.

If it was about EU registration rules, should be from factory or Adam Opel Gmbh, the unique importer of the Opel GT ;) most Opel dealerships don't know anything about this model :)

Rumor has it, there were two larger versions of the mirror.
One that kept the original shape and a second one, looking like a brick.

In the 2010 announcement of the Opel GT the first one was shown, like pictured below:


I had a pic of the brick-one, too. But I can`t find it at the moment.

Not only the Saturn Sky has these bigger mirrors! :cool:
If you buy a Camaro over here you'll get real big mirrors, feels like driving a truck. :gaah:
A good friend of mine is selling US cars and spare parts, he sells a lot of US Version mirrors (smaller). :cool:

It's the law in Germany which makes many things harder.
