Are US & Euro M3 mirrors symmetrical ?

Hello M3 owners,

Can any of you guys verify if your US driverside mirror housing is angled slightly different than your passenger side mirror housing (not the glass)?

Thinking about doing a m3 mirror swap to rid myself of the LCI dumbo ears but looking into getting a pair of Euro M3 mirror housings instead since they are less expensive. I assume if the US spec m3 mirror housings are angled differently, the same applies to the Euro ones, hence not be a good idea to install. Then again, maybe if i angled my glass higher/lower on one side it may help?

Thanks!
