    If it is a facelift it will. If not they won't as screws are in a different place.

    Do you have a cupholder? Clear back lights? One piece headlights? If yes you have a facelift.

    You could get the Inpro ones as they do pre facelift.

    Or you could get the complete mirror assembly from Germany. I found the ones with folding mirrors were looser and moved a bit up and down so avoid them. On the set I had the wiring to the motors were different so if you pushed up it went left or something like that.

    I seem to remember someone modifying a facelift mirror to fit a pre facelift before.
