Be interesting to see how you're gonna make the twin post mount with thru hole design of the M3 mirror into a snap on version that will work on our single post mount...

I dont think it'll mount. It'll just be a extended piece of plastic/post. Also I dont think you'll be able to fold your mirrors after but who cares you have m3 mirrors!
