@  KennyL : (28 October 2014 - 09:04 AM) Ah, the Geo Storm. There's a beast. Heh. Excellent economy cars, in all seriousness. And very reliable and cheap to work on. Just don't attempt to pass anyone. :)
@  Dylan214 : (28 October 2014 - 08:40 AM) lol
@  Stratuscaster : (28 October 2014 - 08:34 AM) 350Z ride is too damn harsh. Rode like my old Geo Storm, which rode like a go-kart.
@  theronz : (28 October 2014 - 04:49 AM) yes kenny, an even 1" drop all around. anything more involves camber issuues($$$)
@  theronz : (28 October 2014 - 04:36 AM) its ok, most chrysler owners feel that same way. but bitches love a fast, LUXURY car duh.
@  99ninjabreeze : (27 October 2014 - 01:48 PM) maaaan I'd pick a 350z over a G any day!!! lol
@  KennyL : (27 October 2014 - 03:40 AM) I imagine the G35 ones are more for ride than handling, since it's the "lux" brand.
@  KennyL : (27 October 2014 - 03:40 AM) Cheap modification for a little lower and more sporty, I'm assuming?
@  theronz : (26 October 2014 - 07:52 PM) i just now swapped 350z springs into my g35 yayyyy
@  theronz : (26 October 2014 - 07:46 PM) you got it

I have a 2000 Cirrus with non-heated powered mirrors. My driver's side mirror got sheared off, so I'm trying to find a replacement. I can find plenty of manuals, and plenty of powered HEATED mirrors.

From what I understand, the difference between heated and non-heated is that the heated have an additional two wires for the heating elements, and of course this means a different connector.

My thinking is that I could get a heated mirror, cut off the connector, and figure out which of the two wires are for the heating elements, and cut those back. Use the old connector from my broken mirror, and I should be all set.

Does this sound reasonable? If so, does anyone have an idea how hard it'd be? I figure it shouldn't be all that hard with a multimeter and a little probing around.

Otherwise - anyone have a source for NON-HEATED powered mirrors? From what I've found so far, aftermarket only makes heated powered, and the salvage yards I've checked with only have broken mirrors.

I don't know much about heated mirrors but i know that you should be able to figure it out and the installation should be simple and it has to be a easy electrical thing. i think heated mirrors would come in handy after a frost or freeze never knoe when those come arround... id keep goin with the heated mirrors and try to figure it out... it would be a nice lil addition :naughty:
