previously, I have asked if you guys are satisfied with the current OEM driver side rearview mirror.
Me? didn't liked it at all, too much blind spot it has. passenger side is okay but the driver side gave me numerous times of freaking times when I shift the lane.
Therefore, I have contacted local mirror manufacturers and finally made an aspheric (Euro type/Wide-angle whatever it called) rear view mirror, and I would like to share the information with you. It's been a month since I installed the mirror and it works nicely.

Just wonder if there is anyone who's interesting to buy it, I have 49 of them left in my desk since the MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity) from the manufacturer was 50. If so please reply below my post.
Here are some sample pictures before/after the installation.




Please let me know what you think.

Hi johniya, Look nice.
I too would be interested.
Can you please tell me if this is "plug and play" - meaning we just need to "pop off" the old one and "pop on" the new one?
How is the mirror affixed to the frame?

Thanks.

Hello BostonGTR, Thanks for your interest.
I will figure out what would be the best way for you to get these. That's should be considered installation method and the price all together.

It can be delivered in both way. "mirror only" or with the module assembled (Plug&go). Based on my knowledge, there are two types of rearview mirror available for CT200h, with Auto-dimming feature or without. Mirror with Auto-dimming feature is what I have and it is relatively easy to install, so I recommend to get the mirror only and DIY. However, the Mirror without Auto-dimming feature (regular type) is hard to install. couple of my friends already cracked the mirror during the installation process; therefore, I recommend to get this with the module.

This mirror is exactly the same size with the OEM mirror not a single digit mm different in size.

Once this purchase is become official I will make installation video-clip on Youtube so that you can try at home.
Now, the Price is the matter of all, right?
Mirror itself costs me $80/piece (w.MOQ of 50 pcs), and I am located in Korea. what would be the right price for you to have them delivered to your door?

Looks like a good idea!
How much? and how easy is it to install?
This is mirror only, and I can purchase original mirror module from Lexus and install it for you. In that case, installation will take 30 seconds.
1. Pop out!
2. Unplug the heating wire plug
3. Plug in the heating wire plug
4. Pop in the new mirror module

Bunch of posts on this 2 weeks ago - any news?

I see there are some "JDM" CT200h mirrors on ebay, but they are stick on, and I think they are using JDM loosely in this instance (aftermarket vs. OE).

I love the mirrors and the look of them on the car, but the blind spot on the driver's side is pretty big, and could be fixed with some wide angle mirrors.
