Anyone from Canada knows a website where I can purchase this version? My car is a SPORT model, but I want to upgrade the side mirror with the LED blinker version. U.S version passenger side have the lanewatch camera which I dislike, it's also a reason why I didn't upgrade higher than SPORT when purchasing the car.

Someone from this forum in another thread say that the Canada version won't have that tiny lanewatch camera and it will be the same driver side mirror.

Thanks.

I believe the ex coupe does not have lanewatch, but has the signals... probably should confirm with an owner, as i think ex-l and up has lanewatch

edit: finally a picture of the correct side of an ex coupe...

Here is the link to the specifications of the Canadian Accord Coupes. You can see that the EXL Navi and EXL V6 both have the same Lane Departure Warning and LaneWatch™ blind spot display just like in the US.

Thanks a lot! After looking again @ honda.com, it looks like EX model has no lanewatch. I'll go to dealer tomorrow to physically confirm it before swapping it. I hope they offer it painted to match my car color!

I also hate the LaneWatch camera too, I already tried to buy the SideView mirror from the sport model (Canadian) but the parts guy over there said they won't sale parts for us customers, So I got to thinking how about the Accord coupe EX SideView mirrors they looks the same as the sedans, I'm currently waiting on my friend to let me borrow a SideView from a Ex Coupe he works in warranty claims at a Honda dealership as soon he gets one in I'm going to try it

EX-L and higher US coupes have LaneWatch, EX and higher sedans have it. Funny because the EX coupe has the touch screen radio, where you have to get the EX-L sedan to get the touch screen.

I may have misunderstood your question. If you don't like the lane watch camera why not have the switch on the turn signal stalk taken apart and set to always turn off the camera. That would be easier than replacing the right side mirror.

There's another thread about this. I looked up the part numbers... The coupe parts are the same as the sedan, except for the ex coupe (as passenger side has no camera). Buy the ex coupe mirror assembly, the led light assembly, and the harness and you're done. If no one does it before I can justify the expense to my wife, I'll gladly trust my own research and do it myself :)

Its the huge unsightly bulge in the passenger side mirror, not the camera's operation.

Do they make the other side to match?

I'm not sure I follow, but the ex coupe passenger and driver side mirror are camera-less and match each other respectively. The driver side mirror shares the same part numbers as the sedan, so both mirrors should fit onto the sport's mounts. theoretically... i'd suggest saving the boxes they come in just in case lol. only thing i'm not so sure of is, if you plug in the new wire harness, if it will actually just make the turn signals work or not. also, interesting note, the led signal is the most expensive part of the swap. must be really spiffy.

I meant do they make a drivers side mirror with the camera? Perhaps sold in another market?

You didn't upgrade to a higher model because of lanewatch? Makes NO sense. You could have just disconnected it. Lane watch is a superior feature. Makes more sense than the silly blinkers.:dunno:

sounds like he bought the sport, but wants factory LED turn signals. the hideous BULGE in the passenger mirror is what he doesnt want, because hideous bulge is hideous. i'd know, because i'm in the same boat. i'm not going to spend more to buy the camera mirror and have a hideous bulge that serves no purpose for me, nor will i go through the trouble to hook the camera up because i have eyeballs that work great and i keep a keen situational awareness. never swerved into someone (that wasn't pulling a jackass maneuver to materialize in the spot i was moving into). but i digress... the mirrors are a sleek upgrade.

what's with the nitpicking? are we forcing these things upon you? there's a solution to his question and it was provided. who cares what your unproductive opinion is of the request or solution?



and yes, huge and unsightly in my opinion, and i'd dare say probably the OP's as well since he is looking to get mirrors without the camera bulge.

Its a personal taste, it looks hideous with that bulge like the picture lol and it's not symmetrical. I like the LED light signal. I still turn my head around when changing lanes so that lane watch camera server no purpose to me. If that camera was hidden at a corner of side mirror then I won't mine.

Or just turn it off in Vehicle Settings. Page 306 of the Manual explains how for those that want to.


There is a bicyclist somewhere in NJ who is alive today because of the Lanewatch on my car.
