Hopefully I'l have some results soon, from what I have read on this site I am expecting to get + .5 / +1 mpg.
Bonrath, German tuners, were the originators for this design and are produced to a quality standard, not cheap though. DTM style is out of fashion these days so second-hand, as you bagged, are a possibility. The ebay mirrors were probably taken from a LHD mould, which may explain your difficulties experienced with the left one.

Please update if you do find some MPG improvements
