New mirrors arrived today, and as I suspected are identical to the one mounted on the passenger door. Really really close to original. The plinths, if anything, are a bit larger and a bit more steeply angled than the original on the drivers door (and mount differently too... the original had two screws going through the mounting block for the mirror and then directly through into the car door, while the new ones have separate holes for the mounting block, so it's 4 screws instead of 2 for each plinth).

Tomorrow, the old ones come off and the new ones go on. I think they'll do nicely. If anyone's interested, I will try to get some detail pics of the differences between them, and before/after shots. Yes, I obsess about these little details.
