    So... Just for curiosities sake, I went out to my car and adjusted my drivers side mirror all the way in and I could see behind my just fine when I sat in the passenger seat and pretended I was British or an Aussie...

    I even moved my seat forward pretending I'm short and I could still see behind me just fine.

    So... My take on this is you can fix a European car with a USDM mirror but you can't fix a USDM car with a European mirror...
    I'm feeling a bit cheated.

    Just an update, I took the mirror off my 2003 protege parts car and it works perfectly fine. My advice would be go to a wrecker and sit in the drivers seat of a car and make sure the mirrors line up. If they do line up, might as well get the mirror. They are super easy to switch out. Just 3 nuts and the you have to take the door panel off to unplug the electric adjust wiring.
