Physically, yes they will fit but you may find the wiring connector is different.

There was a change to the mirror glass colour too.
Early ones had blue mirror glass and later ones had clear mirror glass.

Won't prevent it fitting, but would look odd if one side is different to the other.

Facelift ones are usually colour-coded too......but yeah they'll swap. Assuming you've got aircon make sure the passenger mirror has the "nipple" sensor on it - otherwise you won't have an external temperature reading.....

I had one with old blue glass for a while and it took me a fair while to notice. Yes I do check my mirrors!

There's no actual material difference between black plastic and painted; exact same thing just with paint.
