    The M3 units are not of symmetrical shape and there is a difference in part numbers

    The person who has told you they will not fit may be correct in saying so. What background does this person come from? Do they seem to know their stuff? I think Ronnie is in touch with a very clued up American member who may be able to advise further

    im pretty sure that the fitments are the same but the convex is different as most rhd offside mirrors make items closer than they are and it would be the nearside that would be doing that if you went lhd imo

    If they are US mirror glasses they will be stamped in full visibility;

    'OBJECTS IN THE REAR VIEW MIRROR APPEAR CLOSER THAN THEY ARE'
