1. buy the mirrors for the very good price and let us know how it workes.
2. let me buy the mirror for the very good price, and i will let you know how it works.

Although the mounting plates look similar, they are not. So unless the 987 mounting plate can be used to mount directly to the car, not sure how this would be done. So I would suggest trying to see if the 987 mounting plate will mount to the 986 car.

No, that was a conversion kit. He's asking about direct mounting the entire 987 mirror to a 986, not using the kit like drbodzin did.
