Apologies if this is a dumb question.. about a month ago I bought an EF Fairmont and am absolutely loving it, but I'm just wondering whether or not they came standard with body coloured mirrors? I'm convinced they did, but mine are black (the car is white) and a couple of people have said that in fact they should be black. I intend to get white ones, I think they'll look better... but just thought I'd find out whether or not I was right.
Thanks.

EF/EL mirrors aren't exactly the strongest around. When they take a bit of a hit, they tend to snap the base off before they fold in. This is probably what happened. A previous owner has broken both mirrors and just got some GLi ones to replace them.
