    Oh and allow the Police to go back to giving anyone who deserves it a good kick in the rrse so they can take out all their aggro on anti-social wankers and achieve balance and perspective in their workplace.

    'Pain builds Character' and, in my opinion, self discipline and respect for others.
    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    Spoke to him some more this afternoon.
    He bought the Prado with the mirrors on, arrived from WA. When he drove through Mansfield , everybody was getting booked for everything. Everyone knows what the cops are like up there. Regardless, he took the mirrors off, and got the defect cleared (he also got booked for tires) and few other things.

    The cops who got him may have had a moody day and mirrors could have been fully legal for all he knows.

    Nope - not a word - which probably speaks for itself. Maybe if we all emailed them and asked if they really are ADR compliant we may get an answer.

    Maybe someone we know could offer them vendor advertising for a YES/NO answer here? :-)

    I've read all this thread and was still a little confused about legality, so I read the clear view website and found this. Still not totally convinced so I will make further inquiries before purchasing

    @shakey55 - thanks for the link. I looked on their site and could not find it. Obviously did not look hard enough! I have printed off a copy and will keep it in the Patrol. Problem is - other ADRs specify maximum width of vehicles and such, and depending how you (plod in reality) interpret a particular ADR you may still not be compliant. It all seems silly until you are pulled up in the middle of no where and given a defect notice.

    I see the Clearview mirrors here are ~$740 and I can buy the American style units for sub $200USD. It doesn't look like they'd be difficult to adapt.
    I'll be in the US in August to see my grandkids so wanted to do some useful shopping while I'm there.
    I'm currently in the US and just ordered these from Amazon for USD173. Checked the Clearview site and they have Chevy Silverado mirrors for $795 AUD.
    I'll do a thread on how I adapt them when I get back.. if it works..
