No, they are not the same, as far as I know, and i should know, having spent a fortune on stocking a cupboard full of left and right NOS W116 mirrors.
The chrome cover can be changed, but considering the work involved, and maybe the difficulty obtaining that NOS cover, i would just change out the whole mirror.

Have I answered that one correctly, guys? 8)

postman, is this leading into the thought of putting electric 123 mirrors into the 116! I also thought about this, never bothered checking though.

Yes the passenger side one is electric. But the main reason behind it is the w123 mirrors I have are in much nIce shape than any of the w116 ones
