    My 308 has the original Calfornian LH mirror it came with, no passenger side mirror.

    Over the years I have gotten used to passenger side mirrors and kind of miss one on this car.

    Were these RH mirrors offered as options in 1979? I used to see some cars with RH pass side mirrors back in the day.

    Superperformance has LH and RH Californian (or repops maybe) available.

    Also, even though I cleaned up the mirror and glass on the interior rear view mirror, the silver on the mirror back is deteriorating, it this just a trip to a glass and mirror store with the old mirror for a template?

    Just in case you haven't already found this: http://www.talbotco.com/
    Might be cheaper/easier to buy a new pair. Also interesting that they have a convex passenger side mirror.

    I bought my RH California mirror from Ferrari UK. You need to look in the Australian (RHD) parts book to find the correct part number.

    They are a LOT cheaper at Pegasus racing:

    $58 a piece. Hardly worth NOT replacing them, I'd say...

    Edit: what do you know, 10 seconds after I put this URL on, they shut down their web site for maintenance. I'm sure it will be back up in short order.

    Bottom line: they have both lefthand and righthand models, cost $ 58.99 each.
