Fitted my defender mirrors yesterday, along with the power steering both upgrades worth doing. Started to fit the quick shift kit but mines a jx so the raised floor was a surprise.

Anyone else have a problem with the glare of the lights behind at night? I find it a big issue on dark roads. I have the standard T3 mirrors. Are the Defender mirrors any better for reducing glare or is blue tint the best solution?
