See any wrecking yard. The EF ones are black. Think you can get new aftermarket ones for around $100.

The only difference between EF and EL mirrors is that EL are colour coded.

Outwardly the mirrors are virtually the same between the 2 models and are interchangeable as a unit - EF didn't have the convex (objects may appear closer..) mirror glass in the passenger side. EF & EL GLIs were not color coded.
There are internal differances between models and the head from a later mirror will not fit an earlier base (& vice-versa). Mirror glass is interchangable however.

Sorry I didn't see your reply.
No - any mirror will do if you replace it as a unit (which is how they are sold - new or s/h). If you want one the same color you will need to ring around the wreckers as new ones are only sold in black and require painting.
