I like the look of the updated side mirrors and they look to offer better visibility over standard.

Has anyone retrofitted these or knows if they even fit? I assume they mount
to the same holes because the doors were carried over into the new Exige and Elise.

The 2008 Elige S240 owners manual says the passenger side is convex (standard mirrors), but they look flat and don't enlarge the viewing angle.

They would probably be VERY expensive: $600+ each

at least these updated mirrors seem to be more "user friendly" than the standard ones.
I can't believe the amount of time I always spend to get rid of the smashed insects in that small opening between the current arms...

Compared with our S2 Exiges, the new mirror extensions are required to get a view around the wider V6 Exige rear. As mentioned above, it should be possible to buy just the new extensions and install on our cars. Thinking I may be an early adopter, just not the first.

Some intriguing alternatives can be found here Race Mirrors : Patented Advanced Aerodynamic Design, especially the Professional series.
