Tried my mirrors on D3 but not happy with the fit don't want problems when towing so ordered a set of Milenco Grand Aero which most people have. Ticking of items from my list first outing Ice Feast not long to go. Already got and fitted fixed tow bar brought from fellow member. Thumbs Up

Hi, I've heard the milenco are not a great fit with 2016 D4 because the wing mirror style changed. Milenco told me the grand aero 3 would be fine. So its genuine land rover or milenco. ? ?

What do people think, We have just bought our first van after a few years with tent and trailer, another mountain of equipment to get. Prefer to get the best thing first and not have to change.

Cheers

George

In Aus, I replaced the standard mirrors with Clearview ones. They are terrific and look OK (I'm used to the Big Ears look). No setup needed - just pull them out when needed and push them in when not.

I have two rear cameras on the van but Aus laws require that you can see both far rear corners of the van in the mirrors, regardless of any cameras. Tried strap-on tow mirrors but they blow off too easily by oncoming road trains.

I have a 09 D3 got a pair of Milenco Grand Aero I had not tried them before first use on Thursday only 15 miles max 55 mph first tow with the new disco but found that they moved about a bit. As this was most popular on here trusted their experience might be how I had them set but possibly the smaller more aero type might be better.

There will be a problem with the Clearview mirrors in the UK (and probably continental Europe as well).

There is an maximum amount that mirrors are allowed to project beyond the side of the vehicle, which used to be 12 inches (but technically that has been metricated now). The Land Rover mirror already sticks out for most of that, so the towing mirrors have to be removed when travelling without a trailer. It looks like the Clearview is above that limit when closed.
 Always plan ahead - it wasn't raining when Noah started building the Ark.
