Inspire JDM side mirrors

So,

Has ANYBODY tried fitting these on their accord?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...sPageName=WDVW

I'm confused with the seller stating it fits BOTH sedan and coupe?! I know for a fact that the sedan and coupe have a TOTALLY different set-up when it comes to the mirrors.......

the working theory is that they will fit both. But noone's actually tried yet. There's one or two folks on here that're gonna do it soon though.
The rest of us just have to wait patiently.

Have you test fitted yet? By putting one up to where the mirror is now just to see if the base matches where it connects to the car?

they do work.. but they're not "JDM Inspire".. these are from Thailand..

another thing to note is the viewing angel is also different and will be restricted considering they're driving on the right side..

that I don't know.. doubti t tho

my plan was to get a set, and replace my own mirror and motor into it.. but that means spending $500+ just for the LED strip which is kinda stupid..

so alternative is find a guy to retrofit LED onto the existing one..

Inspire in Japan has heated side mirros.. none of the others in Taiwan, Thailand, Hong Kong, China, etc.. has heated side mirrors.

So technically, it is not the same thing.. looks the same tho..
