The price difference between genuine and non-genuine car mirrors is sometimes not significant, so you should choose a genuine car mirror when the price difference is not significant.
For example, the price of an original Honda Insight front mirror is RM 5500.00 (installed) and the price of a non-original front mirror is only RM 800.00 (installed). In this case, you should choose the non-original car mirror because the original price is much more expensive.
