Hi folks,

I am on the verge of buying this vehicle. 57 plate 1.4 SXi, all looking great, has been looked over by a mechanic who told me it's in good shape for the age and the engine is in very good nick. Has 76k on the clock and I am getting a very good deal on price. However, when test driving it I noticed it does not have the electric mirror switch (just a blanked plate above window controls), and it does not have manual mirror controls (like some older cars do). Just wondering, is this normal? I looked all around the interior and could not see anything looking like controls. The current owner is a lady who was just as clueless as me, said she's never had to adjust the mirrors! It wouldn't be a deal breaker if I have to source and fit the electric switches myself, just seems very strange to me. At the minute the only way to adjust the mirrors is to manually adjust the glass by hand. The car is definitely an SXi.

Possibly had mirror switched swapped at some point. You can get the switches on ebay quite easily for about £15 so wouldn't worry too much over it if the rest of the car checks out
