In the supplied pics of my drivers side door edge there has been some metal removed. Was this a factory design or some type of aftermarket attempt to install a rear view mirror? I included a pic of the outside rear view mirror placement I took off about a year ago.

looks like an aftermarket mod to fit the rear view mirror bracket which was probably fouling with the A pillar so they cut into the door

Looks like they tried two styles R.V.Ms. Makes driving a lot less stressful. Somebody's got a R.V. out there that doesn't require drilling or milling away the sheet metal, seen it but have no photos.

Hi Gary,

My door does not have this notch. I think your door was modified post-production.

It strikes me that left-and right-hand RVM's are [i:1bpxzb6u]de-rigueur[/i:1bpxzb6u] on the sedans unless you want to drive by the "contact method."

A possible solution,: years ago I saw sedan with a nice chromed RVM that was mounted on a mostly-horizontal chromed pedestal at the rear end of the fence/grille. The owner told me it was a Harley Davidson accessory and that the hole was already present. I have not checked it out.
