Do any US Civic models have LED turn signals in side mirrors, but w/o lane watch camera?

    Trying to see how one could swap out the US side mirrors with ones that have the turn signals in them.

    Canadian CTRs have them, but also have the lane watch camera bulge which is not preferable.

    European CTRs have them, but would rather not go that route if possible, too much hassle.

    It looks like all current US Civics (with the exception of the CTR) now have sensing as standard (which probably means they now have the LW bulge, correct?). So do any pre-2020 US Civics have integrated turn signals without the LW camera?

    Thanks!

    Simple answer is no. I did this mod. You need to order the right side mirror housing from Cox Motorparts. $55 shipped two day air from the UK. The rest you can order from a US dealership and surprisingly the UK part came in faster.

    Below is all the parts you need (top left is UK part; bottom middle are screws and you need 4). I chose to purchase the touring mirror harness so I could use the OEM plugs and wiring for the LED unit. PM if you have specific questions.

    Definitely not plug and play. The OEM plug and wires extrapolated from the Civic Touring mirror harness allows me to use it as a pigtail. I had to extend the wires to the interior fusebox to tap into the turn signal wires.

    The Touring mirror housings with the LED bolt straight up to the existing CTR mirror assembly.

    The mirrors are Mugen, and to be honest I think they are the same manufacturer as both are made in Taiwan.

    Thanks dude, pretty helpful! When I get around to actually doing it, I'll probably hit you up with some stupid questions (electrical-related) I'm sure. Still can't believe Honda purposely left out these LED turn signals off the CTR, to save a few cents. It's a safety issue, surprised there is no DOT regulation on mandating blinking sidemarkers on all new cars.
