The arms on the newer version mirrors are too thin for their increased length ... just a bad design. Hence my insistence that I had the earlier version  :002:

How did you go on with the rhs being lh thread? The earlier mirrors are both rh thread iirc. I fitted speedy mirrors to my '14 TS for the extra width. I think they're also quieter.

The dealer fitted them for me ... I have just looked tho, there are no adapters in place so I can only assume the 13 plate Sport has the same thread arrangement as the later version.

I always liked the original mirrors anyway, and found rear view in them to be good. I couldn't understand why they changed them so radically, silly thin arms. It would have made more sense to have simple extended the originals a little bit in length.

I did fiddle with the adjustment to get the most view possible but I am quite happy with them.
