I remember getting my car, and it didn't have a right hand mirror. Be it that the back window is so huge, and all the windows are so huge, it's not really a problem, but it does make your car look better and more "balanced" having one. You can get a use one for less than ~$50 on ebay click here. Here is how I installed mine:

1. Pop off that Metal cover

5. This is the problem I ran into, unless you get an internal cover plate, like I did, with a hole, you're going to have to drill a hole. You're also going to have to SLIDE off that handle, study it a while and it will make sense and come off.

6. Done, and Done, a hold has been drilled.
