Mirror indicators

Saw these, lot of faff to fit and not too keen, but may appeal to someone?

The arrow bits are on ebay at £4.19, can’t see full kit.

Anything which makes the little Twizzy easier to see is a positive IMHO :slight_smile:

As a side, I have to admit to being a little confused about this method.

Most mirrors are plastic-backed, meaning you can take the mirror off the plastic backing, and then put the LED between mirror and plastic backing.

Is this not the case with the Twizy?

Nikki.

Mirror indicators are a great idea, but I question the usefulness of the led arrows in the mirror. Surely it is a distraction to the driver since you will often be checking the mirror as you turn, perhaps for a cyclist undertaking on the inside. Has this feature been used on production cars already?

Yep, I would not want anything in my mirrors whatsoever. Not sure if these mirrors are on a production car, but some Audis use sweeping rear lights for flashers in the same way.

Surely a strip of LEDs on the end of the mirror case would be better all round?

I like the idea if a bit of a gimic… HOWEVER, fitting these seems a nightmare. Door disassembled, front panel off and light out seems a very intensive way to retro fit them. Dosn’t show how to do all of those operations to get to the bolt for the mirror/door trim.
