Mirrors LHD versus RHD

Hey does anyone know if the exterior mirrors on LHD and RHD drive cars are different?
With minis the covers are not interchangable between the LHD and RHD vehicles.

Thanks

I can not answer your question but this does bring up a great idea.

If the mirrors are interchangable then this would be a great mod opportunity for those that think the mirrors are too small.

Only the passenger side mirror is convex so if you could get a right side mirror from a right hand drive car then you could have convex on both sides. This will help out a bunch with the blind spot on the drivers side:thumbup:

Anyone know???:iono:

They are the same size. I bought some CF mirror covers from the US and they fit my car just fine.
