    I just ordered a pair ganador mirror through rhdjapan.com. I'm aware that in their website it's written EC5W fitment. My car is a galant with chasis code EC5A. And I thought there shouldn't be any fitment issue as it looks the same. Well, i never really see a legnum in a real life. After they charged my cc, then a replied came and said the order is void cause the mirror is not compatible with my car, which i am a bit disappointed cause they should review my order first before charging my cc. But they refunded the money. So there is no problem.

    Here is the link to the mirror:
    https://www.rhdjapan.com/home/products/product_detail.php?int_product_id=162

    Can I anyone confirm that if it's true?

    Before I ordered this mirror, I emailed and asked them if the cusco front and rear sway bar for legnum will fit to galant. They said it will not fit but Kieran confirmed it will fit. and lots of clubvr4.com member use it.

    I'm 100% certain it will fit, as there is no difference between the wagon and sedan at the front end. It makes sense for Mitsubishi to make parts as interchangable between the two models as possible.

    Having said that you might feel more comfortable asking Brad or Carsten, as I haven't actually tried to compare the wing mirror assembly between the Galant and Legnum personally.

    yeah they will fit fine.

    There is no difference in front of the B pillar at all, even the front doors fit either car!

    most ganador mirrors are the fixed type... besides, who actually uses the folding mirrors, i've had them for years and it was purely novelty.

    I use the folding mirrors because in my rolla someone walked past my car in the carpark and pulled the mirror back and it smashed ... It could have been an accident i don't know.

    It's mainly to make it easier to walk down the side of the car when it's in the garage. There is room to open the door (but not very far).

    it is also handy to have them folded back when your in in a car park because i have heard of people having there mirrors damaged by people walking through the cars and bumping into them

    The main reason I choose this mirror is because it's electrically adjustable a friend of mine said all ganador mirror should be electricaly adjustable if if doesn't then it's fake one.....but i don't know for sure.....

    bad news I just max out my cc buying this mirror, then I have to wait 7-10 days for refunded transfer back to my cc then i'll repurchase it again.

    If rhd did a review on my order before cancel it, the mirror should be here by tuesday or wedneday next week =(

    The Ganador website listed electric and non-electric ones a while ago. I remember the google translation quite well

    "The one it adjusts itself"

    "The one you adjust with hand"
