Last night I posted on the CX-9 side, the same wording as the one I posted just above this post.
I checked and it is not there. Is it possible that the CX-9 moderator just isn't interested in his followers having the same opportunity to get a set of the Suma Performance mirrors?
Communication with Eddy seems to be quick. He is indicating the low barrier for "interest" to proceed with a batch run is 15 sets. I count 7 interested persons currently.

You should have received a notification explaining why the thread was deleted. In this case, it's because it was redundant (a thread regarding these mirrors has already been created in the CX-9 subforum, and refers interested members to this thread).
Okay, I understand. However, I didn't get a notification but that's fine.
Hopefully we will get the necessary minimum to get this production of mirrors going.
I haven't talked with Eddy for a while but as long as everyone who is interested is contacting him directly, there should be no confusion on his part, which is what's important.
Is there anyone interested in these outside rearview mirrors who hasn't responded to Eddy at Suma Performance yet?For ALL Suma Performance Mirror Inquires, Info Regarding Pre-Paids, Etc.....
I think it would be best to contact Eddy at the following address. Be sure to tell him you are a member of the Mazda247 forum.
Since this is his business, he is the one who is best equipped to organize this buy.
Keeping as few middle men/women out of this potential sale will make this process so much more efficient.
It might also be a good idea if you leave your name and email address with him so that he can inform us individually as to the status of availability and pricing. Also, you can include in your post to him any questions you have about the products.
Right now, it's just a matter of getting enough of us to commit, which is the most important first step. Again, This should be in the hands of Eddy since he is the one who is going to make arrangements for manufacturing.
The opportunity has finally arrived. According to Eddy at Suma Performance, they now have enough interest and are taking Pre-orders. If anyone was contemplating these great OEM mirror glass replacements, now is the time to act.There is a company called Suma Performance that among other things, have fantastic, direct replacement mirror glass for the outside left and right mirrors.
These do not replace the entire mirror, just the mirror glass and its base. It is a direct replacement for the OEM glass and is an easy mod to do. You just pull the current mirror glass off and push the new one on. They are a ball and socket fit just like the OEM glass is.
I purchased these and installed them on my 2016 MX-5 about a year ago and they are fantastic. BTW, I am not affiliated with this company. I am just trying to get them available for our CX-5 models, 2017+, I don't know if the mirror shapes are the same on any older models.
The direct mirror replacements are one of the best add-ons I have done for my MX-5 as far as safety and convenience. My wife is the primary driver of our CX-5 and has really wanted them ever since seeing and experiencing them on my MX-5.
If we can get enough people interested in these, Suma Performance will have them manufactured for our vehicles. I believe the owner of the company, Eddy, said that if we can get at least 15 pre orders, it would be good to go for them. Take a look at their web site and decide for yourself if this is something you'd like.
I don't know what the price would be for us but I assume they would be not much different from their current mirrors for other models. Again, if interested, take a look at their web site. Their service is top notch as is the quality of these mirrors.
If anyone has questions regarding these, you can either ask them directly or ask me, even though I can't speak for the company. I just want to be a customer for the second time with my other vehicle.
