I need to replace an exterior rearview mirror on the caprice. It was brought to my attention that some had black plastic mirrors and some had them painted body color.

Looks like mine are black plastic, but since the car is black, I'd like to confirm via rpo if feasible.

My 1995 DGGM and my 1996 Medium Red Garnet both have black mirrors.

What is rpo?

regular production option.  It's the 3 digit alphanumeric identifier on the SPID tag.  e.g. G80 is limited slip differential.

Good to know about your mirrors.

I believe the RMs had the color matched mirrors, and the Caprice has black plastic ones (not painted).

I looked at some of my pics from past Wagonfests. Many of the 1994 Caprice had color-matched mirrors, but that's when they were mounted farther back on the door. 1995 and 1996 Caprice are all black plastic. Same for 1994 Roadmasters: all color matched. After 1994 on Roadmasters, it's a bit like the Pirate Code ("they're more like guidelines"). There seemed to be a mix of color-matched and black on something else.

After a few more posts, you should be able to post what you are looking for in the "wanted" section.

Outside mirror RPOs have a first letter "D". If you can list all your "DXX" RPOs, I can check which style of mirror your wagon came with.

There are only two styles, 91-94, 95-96, and of those two styles there is electric, or manual. They are so distinct in design, that you can look at them and tell them apart. The controls inside the car will tell you whether they are electric or manual. Pretty simple, no RPOs needed, just year and type of control.
