Ditto. Been away twice since I did the inner tube mod and no issues or worries about mirror detachment whatsoever Thumbs Up

Followed the tip to put a piece of inner tube rubber on the bottom of the clamp, mirror's never budged at all while towing.

Top tip Thumbs Up

I went for the genuine LR ones. They are superb. I didn't bother fitting mirrors before but these work so well and are easy to fit I use them everytime.
Well worth the money in my opinion.

I phoned the LR garage, gave them my reg plate 16 discovery. He said they don't do wing mirror extensions for the later disco's. They only do them up to 14. He added, a customer with a 16 plate (new shaped wing mirrors) bought them and brought them back. So he's been advised not to supply them for 16 plates

Milenco emailed me to say their Aero 3'S fit perfectly on the 16 disco new shaped mirror. Presume everybody using the tyre tube modification are not using Aero 3's. ?

Cheers

George

Picking up my caravan on Sunday- need to make a call this week, I wouldn't mind paying extra for LR but seems that's not advised

Good Morning George,

Further to your email i can advise that our grand Aero 3 mirrors will fit perfectly fine.

These mirrors come in either flat or convex glass of which is your choice that you would prefer.

Kind Regards,

Purchased some grand aero mirrors last year and the clamps fit nicely on my 2015 D4. I've found I had to losen all of the fixing screws each time and ensure the clamps are pushed all the way back. Also the distance between the clamps is less than on my older D4 otherwise you run into trouble. I'll take a photo and post it tomorrow in day light. Drove all the way to south of france and back and they didnt move, even with the extra wide bars (8' van) and some contact with hedges. Photos to follow

Given the popularity of LR vehicles for towing, you would think that JLR would have developed optional electrically operated extending wing mirrors for their cars by now, save a lot of faffing about Whistle

Old - MY12 D4 SDV6 XS Auto - Ipanema Sand with Almond Leather - Plus other niceties, and D4.com sticker
