I don't really have a sense for what a set of mirrors, the swtich, the relay and the pigtails are worth, 130 + 70 shipping seems a little steep, but some of y'all might have a better sense than I do.

Seeing as it's everything you need but the fresh wires, it's not a terrible price to pay for JDM tyte status.

Well, that and LHD glass.

edit: And the only company I can find that sells these is out of Britian and doesn't ship to the States (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TOYOTA-CELICA-MK5-1990-1993-DOOR-CONVEX-WING-MIRROR-GLASS-/331162871357?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item4d1ad8663d). Anyone in Canada wanna make some money as a middle man?

I think what they mean is left or right side... not LHD/RHD. Find a parts supplier in a LHD country, or better yet, a junkyard in a LHD country.

the glass is convex on the drivers side and flat on the passanger side (or did I get that backwards?). so LHD glass has convex on the left, flat on the right, RHD glass has convex on the right, flat on the left. It looks like someone in Germany might be my best bet, they got the non-power folding mirrors in a LHD configuration.

Or you could just swap the mirror glass from a set at the wrecker in your area. Mounting points and all are identical. Only the curvatures are different.

Wrong shape glass for that.

Yeah, with the difficulty in getting glass I'm gonna call the USDM mirrors good enough. They're cool an all, but I really like being able to back up :) Besides, 200 bucks for a set of mirrors is pretty steep, especially with some of the other parts I'm looking to get for my 93.
