    yes the mirrors are the same color of your vehicle. I will find my factory picture for you when I get on my home pc.

    i have seen a few but they are different colors but i did see one that was in black didn't notice if it had any covers on the mirrors if they are like the gmc and chevy versions i don't think i will ever take the covers off it don't look right for a black lade anyway considering it has chrome in other places

    because to many people too much chrome is tacky. (look at many riced out and I hate to pull out a stereotype here, but many mexican vehicles.) I think mirrors should only be seen when you want to look behind you. Making them all chrome just screams ugly/tacky. GM made the mirrors body color to blend. I just wish they would have made the entire thing body color and not just the front cover.

    I have to disagree nifty, I think the cheesy chrome mirror covers add a touch of class to a vehicle that already has chrome on it from the factory.

    Hell even the '07's and up have factory chrome mirrors.


    Man you would hate to see my wifes "cheesed" up chromed Jaguar.

    We are old school!

    Re: is my lade the only one with full chrome mirror covers?

    i see where you are going at with this a have seen a jag before the owner is the dean of my collage but i like some chrome but some cars like that if you pay that much for a car they think you want that much chrome.
    shoot my caddy doesn't have nearly as much chrome as my 79 chrysler cordoba man is it a pitato clean with the chrome on i'll put it this in a list doors, hood, roof it has a chrome band going over the middle all of the windows has chrome around them trunk has a peice around the plates even the taillights and hood blinkers has chrome if you don't belive me just do a google search for 1979 chrysler cordoba don't get wroung it is a nice car for a classic but it has more chrome then any car on the road today i think chrysler was crazy for chrome or they was trying to compete with caddy which is way i like the covers on mine so i don't mind but i never had no one say that they didn't like the look of the caddy
