does anyone know where to find a connector to match the 7 pin connector on the mirrors?

Euro spec mirrors are the same as the JDM ones (really the only different ones are US spec) but they are for LHD use (except for the united kingdom ones obviously)

They are only manual foldable, as far i know electric ones were only offered in RHD, for japan and uk.

Those mirrors are cheap here, they are standard for all 5gen celicas. About 40 bucks a pair in a scrap yard.

Yeah I have both at the moment, I hear of some manual ones from Germany but I don't have any solid proof of that.

So far I haven't sat down and wired in the power ones to get them to work.

Any good ebay terms to search for the euro ones? I want a set, but I do not want electronic folding ones. I rather have a manual set. I might just have to log into an international ebay and sift through the searches.

Ive been looking and the problem about using english words in the search is that 99% of the results are from the uk (RHD). I dont know if its possible to search in ebay excluding a specific country apart from using international ebay sites.

In europe most of ebay celica parts are sold from the uk or germany. After doing some research it appears that the german word for mirror is Außenspiegel

This seller has a pair for 30 euro each one.

For some reason i cant get this to work. My SuperSonic mirrors are a bit different inside though. Any success changing the angle on these from rhd to lhd?
