Default Upgrade mirrors?

I have a new to me 2005 Limited turbo. The mirrors are the fixed type with electric adjust, but the motors seem a bit temperamental. The mirrors look a bit tacky - my PT is a cool black and chrome, but the fixed (non-folding) mirrors are that cheap back plastic look.

Some PTs (Euro?) have fold-up mirrors. Any one know a source in the US?

Steve,

The first couple years the PT was madein the U.S. they had the fold-up type mirrors. Chrysler went to solid mirrors for cost cutting measures along with a few other tidbits. They were still the same texture of the bumpers and flat black but they folded up. Yo can get a pair from a salvage yard and replace yours without too much trouble but they'll still be flat black. They can be painted pretty easily by yourself or any decent painter to match the outside of your car and it would be a great time to have them painted as you switch from solid to the movable/folding mirrors.
