Fuji White L320, thoughts on gloss black mirrors and handles

As the title asks, I need to replace my door handles due to damaged clips and some thin paint areas and was going to get them in Fuji White like the rest of the vehicle. I then parked next to a Disco 4 with black pack outside Rimmer Bros in Lincoln and loved the contrasting Fuji White body with black handles. Has anyone done this and got photos or have thoughts? I also have chrome mirror caps which I hate and I’m thinking they would look good in Gloss Black too, maybe even fit the later Disco 4 indicator mirrors, any thoughts on how they would look?

Please post photos if you’ve seen/tried this. 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)

Not sure about door handles as hate white cars personally, but this is what Disco/RRS2 mirrors look like on a RRS1

They do look good, is the wiring connector the same or did you modify the mirror loom and use a separate connector for the indicator? Have you covered the old indicator holes with Autobiography badges? 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)

It was 2/3 years ago I fitted the mirrors to mine, If I remember correctly it was a simple mod as the plugs were the same, the repeater wire is simply connected to the relevant wire in the mirror plug, I did have some spare bits of wiring harness laid around so managed to find some lengths of wire with the correct pin at one end so fitted directly into the multiplug and just soldered the other end to the repeater lamp feed. The only other issue I had was as I have the surround camera system and the puddle light, is a integral part of the camera on the RRS1 but it only involved moving the wire to a different position in the plug and changing the CCF files to tell the car it had puddle lights fitted. Couldn't get the RRS2 cameras to work as they are totally different which was quite a challenge, ended up fitting some of the rear spoiler reversing cameras in the end which worked out quite well eventually.

Just stuck some badges over existing repeater lamp hole.

Black mirror covers and handle covers fitted. Had some trouble with the smaller door handle caps but powerfulUK have sorted it all out. 👍



I don’t know if I should leave the mirrors 1/2 and 1/2 or go fully black. I’m still considering the later Disco 4 mirrors too. 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)
