Regarding mirrors, I'm not saying bin them, I'm just saying that the OEM one's aren't very forgiving in an accident, and they're also pretty heavy. Adv Spec offer a much lighter and crash friendly option. Yes, a headlight protector is worth the investment.

Happy new year mate.
Right on. Good advice though. Happy New Year!
