I want to get a passenger side mirror but know that some
Of them dont have the right arm/angle and blocks
The view. I ordered a rather expensive one from
Kgpr but sent it back bc the reflection was
Terrible and hard to see out of.
Anyone have exp buying with the correct passenger side
Mirror?
Thanks!

Do you have one now? If not I would not bother unless you can find an original mirror.

IMO even the good repros are lacking. More trouble than they are worth.

Type 3 passenger-side mirror mounted to Ghia driver-side base = Ghia passenger-side mirror assembly, according to a post on this thread...

Should be able to find a decent OG Type 3 mirror easily.

The later model Ghia passenger side does have a longer uniquely bent arm mirror . KGPR is probably going to have your best aftermarket choice. The Super Beetle Convertible does share the same one if you want to expand your look for a good used one.

For my 70 I bought my mirror from West Coast Metrics. Someone gave me a brand new driver side mirror from them, and I liked the quality. Seems they have lowered their prices.

Yeah. Mine basically just fills the hole on that side. Very Happy
