Euro owners: blind spot mirror in side view mirror.

Greetings,

I noticed Japan models come with blind spot mirrors for the side view mirrors for RHD.

For european owners, do any countries have blind spot mirrors in the side view mirrors for LHD?

Thank you

The RHD blind spot mirror from japan will not help the driver if installed in a LHD car. Just wondering if any European owners have them in a LHD car purchased in Europe.

It won't fit the EU or North America version. The side view mirrors are same as Prius IV in Japan; however, the one in Europe and North America is same as Corolla, Camry, and Avalon.

Wow? How do you know that? Do you work for Toyota? C-HR in different countries have different shaped side view mirrors?

Thank you!

Nah.. just noticed that accidentally. There're lots of differences between North America and EU version. Toyota had redesigned the front bumper, engine, lights, airbags, and Isofix...even the rear bumper reinforcement is different. So, we have to pay more attention to the accessories we purchase on eBay or Amazon.

Yes, the top versions in EU have the BSM and RTCA (rear cross traffic alert) but dont have the bulb under the mirror as in the pictures above.

I would love to find a aftermarket, adhesive blind spot mirror for my NA C-hr. Please let me know if anyone finds one!

That presumes you got BSM. I didn't. I've almost had 6 accidents in a month. That car has the worst blind spots of anything I've ever experienced. You can't see in the mirrors and you can't see by turning your head. I can't believe that Toyota didn't include BSM in the base model give how truly bad the blind spots are. I fully expect to have wrecked that car before the loan is paid off.

Me too. I've been searching and I can't find anything that really works for / with the C-HR.
