Mirrors on RHD bases don't work. When I ordered 96+ mirrors for my Integra (looks very similar to CTR's), I was sent RHD ITR mirrors. I tried mounting them on my car and couldn't see jack out of the left mirror because it was angled in way too far. I was able to swap the triangular bases with my original mirrors, as the mirror shells were the same shape/angle where they mounted to the bases.

You can easily see the difference here:

the last thing i want are copies but i need LHD bases for my car and they only made oem LHD bases for this type of mirror on a select few EDM civics and you definitely can't find those anywhere. i had some real ctr jdm mirrors on my civic and even with the mirrors fully adjusted out/in you couldn't see anything.

yeah you can even get them from a prelude BUT they don't make the LHD base for EK's. They do however make the replica LHD bases. So i need to find those and just get the prelude mirrors to put on the bases.

Thanks for everyone's input. If anyone knows anything else or knows of someone with some LHD bases for a ek coupe, please let me know.

What wrong with replicas anyway? If they look the same and work the same, really, who cares? Now if they're shoddy quality then yeah I wouldn't. But otherwise what's the big deal? Are you concerned with fitment, or motor operation?

Exactly. My spoon knock-off mirrors are at the shop right not getting painted :D

I did get an OEM front lip however, they're cheap enough and I can't stand it when parts don't fit well.

I never said anything closely related to what your referencing. I just want to know where I can find them.

I've had RHD JDM CTR mirrors on my civic and they were horrible. Maybe you have some replicas.

It's likely he bought OEM RHD CTR mirrors from someone who had the glass replaced.
