A broken wing mirror majorly reduces visibility and more than likely, will lead to MOT failure. In fact, failures under “Driver’s view of the road”, are within the top five reasons for MOT vehicle failure. Wing mirrors are therefore in demand in the aftermarket. With vehicles staying on the road longer, motorists are now looking for long term, effective solutions.
To fulfill this demand, Summit has invested in the development of wing mirror replacements, creating a mirror glass with a backing plate, which is a direct replacement of the original glass. Instead of just sticking a piece of glass over the existing broken mirror glass, Summit’s range of wing mirror replacements allows you to simply remove the old mirror glass and just click in the new OE style. In addition to ensuring a premium finish, Summit’s wing mirror replacements also prove to be a more cost effective alternative to a full mirror unit replacement and is therefore a more desirable solution.
Since Summit’s wing mirror replacements range replicates the OE profile, all glass comes with an OE-style backing plate and heating element where applicable. The anti-dazzle, heated, backing plate glass is also available if the vehicle was originally fitted with this feature.
The Summit range of mirror glass with backing plates allows quick and easy fitment, without the need for tools. With full detailed fitting instructions and diagrams included in each box, this is a hassle-free solution for garages which minimises queries at factor level.
To help motor factors maximise on this profitable opportunity, Summit has invested in new part numbers and stock to create the biggest application list in the UK. In 2013, 70 new to range references were added, covering some of the latest applications in the vehicle parc. With commitment to continuous range development, Summit aims to be first to market when it comes to mirror glass replacement.
