Mirrors were never required to be matching or symetrical. Matter of fact dual outside mirrors werent even standard on automobiles. I had a 300e class mercedes  with miss matching mirrors and didnt even know it for the longest time. They probably are different because  the passenger one needed to be larger for more visability, the passenger side is probably larger on your car too.
