    As my carbon ones arrived today I thought I'd post a couple of comparison pics between the two.

    The carbon ones are actually heavier than the Subaru ones!

    Slight difference in the glass shape (excuse the reflections!)

    Pretty much the same shell shape:

    No drain holes in the carbon ones:

    A search through some old Japanese books revealed this:

    I still prefer the carbon fiber ones, despite of the slight weight difference.

    Is that the Alex catalogue? Notice there is also a GpA version it seems.

    It's an old Hyper Rev but there are a few different mirrors in there
