i just got done talking to my pontiac deaalership, asking them if they had 99-02 twin post mirrors, and they said they have them in stock. $89 a piece. he asked what year my car was, i said 04'. i said i wanted to switch the mirrors because if style etc. etc. he said: "oh...well just so you know that will void your mirror warranty, and the mirrors wont ven fit on your 04', the connectors are different".

DAMNIT! will it really void my warranty? and i thought they fit 04's!:mad:
help me!!

they will fit....and they may void the warranty of the Mirror ..ONLY...depending on the dealer you ask...lol


Unless you have a dealer do it for you....looks like another dealer other than yours.

Do it yurself...save the old ones...and swap em back when you hand in your car....nobody could ever tell

I had the twin post mirrors installed on my 2003 coupe and they fit perfectly. Just buy them off gm parts direct for $92 for both of them. When I had my car in the bodyshop last October to get a new rear bumper put on I dropped off my mirrors to them and they painted them for me and they installed them for me for free. The only thing I had to pay for was $88 to paint them. It shouldn't void your warranty it is gm parts.

he said the connectors wont fit? is this guy stupid, or is he right? i want these so bad.

and at GM parts direct you got both of them for $92?

I had the same question as you did will they fit my car. I e-mailed someone at GM parts direct one time will the same question and they gave me a run around answer like you have to check with your dealer to see if they will fit and then they said I would have to pay extra to get them painted. I just ordered the mirrors and had the gm dealership put them on for me. My mirrors work fine and I got power to both of my mirrors. So it works the dealer probably is just running around with stupid thoughts to you because they don't want to install or paint them for you.:)

Here are the part numbers

~22613596
~22613597

My bill came out to $91.09 with tax and shipping charges with everything. It sure is a lot cheaper going through them else the dealer will price gulge you every penny.

Mine took about a week to come. Trust me when you put them on you will notice the difference. I couldn't believe how different my car looks when I got my sct hood put on Friday it sure makes a difference.:)

That means the dealer selling through the GMPartsDirect site is located in North Carolina and he has to charge taxes more if you live there.

I have twin post mirrors on my 03 and the connectors are the same, and they fit fine......If a dealership told me I was voiding my mirror warrenty I would laugh in their face and walk away.......1.) mirrors have virtually no moving parts except the small motor and I bet my left nut that if you did take it in for "mirror repair" they would NEVER think to notice the difference......Only us Grand Am addicts keep tabs on stuff like this.....not even a dealership would notice that you have an 02 or newer but have twin post mirrors. They would never even think of it!!

Yes, they look okay with the sides debadged. My 2003 came with badges on the sides but those are the 30th Anniversary Badges but it still looks good.

When you get your mirrors on they will seem so huge on your car I was used to the alero mirrors on my car for 6 months. I had to get them because on my 00 GT I had the nice mirrors and I was missing them you can actually see a lot better out of your mirrors without the mouse ears I call them:p

GTLUVA
02-12-2004, 08:04 AM
I'm going to be buying a Sct spoiler as soon as I get my tax return. I have to wait 10-16 days for my money. I'm hoping by next Friday it will two weeks already.:thumbs:
My car looks really good with sct hood but it looks weird without the sct spoiler.

I just came back to my car today to find some a$$hole cliiped my sideview mirror. Since it has to be replaced, I might as well replace both with the two post style. Just wanted to make sure that the numbers are correct for the mirrors above because GM Parts Direct doesn't exactly give a good description. Also, do the mirrors come painted, or do I have to take care of that myself? Thanks for the help.

GTLUVA

Yes, you aren't cool if you don't have the twin post mirrors.:cool:
The bad thing is the mirrors don't come painted.
