yea, mine does. You mentioned red paint on the manifold in my plenum post, do you have a pic of that. I am debating how to detail the engine compartment and that intrigued me.

the mirror is held on with a snap, I tightned mine up after removing the mirror for cleaning, it was loose. just a little bit of bending with a pair of needle nose pliers.

My mirrors did that until I rebuilt the front brake calipers. They didn't feel like they were grabbing but at 60 mph, I was getting a vibration. Since that fix, the car runs great and no shake in the rear view mirror.
If your getting s light vibration at speed, that might be the problem.
