I was really picky about mirrors as my 65 MGB was used as a daily
commuter.  I was happy with the 2 screw mount door mirror that Moss
carries (223-310).  It's a repro of the original Lucas mirror and looks
like it belongs on the early car.  It does not have bounce back
capability, but I didn't have any problems with it getting knocked out
of position.

Make sure whatever mirror you choose will tilt inward enough for good
visibility and does not foul the quarterlight.

I have a '66 MGB that will be on the road within the next month.  I 
need to purchase a driver side mirror.  I had the previous mirror holes 
filled in when the car was painted.  I am not concerned about 
originality.  This car will be a daily driver.  I've spent quite a bit 
of time driving my father's '73B with the mirrors that are 
spring-loaded and will rotate 90 degrees if needed.  These are kinda 
cool and I'm comfortable with them.

It appears that Moss does not have these spring-loaded mirrors.  So, 
has anyone out there tried those bullet style mirrors with 3" 
flat/convex or 4" flat mirrors?  What about the Raydot racing mirrors?  
Are the original style (for a '66) just as good?

What type of mirrors do you guys really like?
