I attended the National this past summer with my yellow Skpel. I was fortunate to win 1st place in the highly modified class, both Solstice and Sky and a look alike Opel GT(mine). I had people tell me to enter in the unlimited class to give Rob some competition. My car was a major hit at the National, and I am very thankful for that. But never a single comment about the mirrors, not a single one, other than the people that I told about them and they actually sat in the car a looked thru them.
You don't notice them on the car. But once you drive with them, you can not understand the reason for the small mirrors. I am so thankful these were found and that I now have three sets. I feel the wife and other drivers have benefited from this find, if no one else does. I know Robert Neighbors will benefit as I am sending his out on Thursday morning.
And yes the yellow and black car at the top of the banner is my yellow Skpel and it has the mirrors on it.
I will say that I think they are noticeable from behind, but not out of place.
I think they should be on every Kappa out there, but my guess is the cost would have kept them only on the Euro cars. These were made to meet European standards, the same standards that Ferrari, Lamborghini and Bugatti have to meet.
Apologies for the dirty car pictures, it has not been washed or cleaned since the National last June.
