In short, No
I looked at this aspect before putting the door panels back on.
There are 2 datum pegs & a big screw that locate & pull the mirror onto the door flitch.
To bring the mirror back to an ideal position, you need a 3mm thick packer.
If you do this , the mirror will not seal properly to the flitch & wind noise will occur.
Add to this the screw & cupped washer that ensure that the mirror is pulled flush & square up against the door flitch then being forced to secure at 7.5 degrees out of alignment, does not bode well for this method.
