The link was very helpful,

There seems to be more than one kind of fixing to a mirror cover, the new ones are not the same as my original white ones,

is this to do with the year

I think the new one in photo is also a slightly different shape for the Mk2 2007 onwards MINI.......you need Mk1 2001-2006?
