2019 Insight side view mirrors are same as 2019 Civic side view mirror. So I think you can install Civic BSM to Insight.

To clarify, are you referring to reapplying aftermarket Civic Blind Spot Monitors to the Insight? I don't think the Civic has any OEM Blind Spot Monitoring systems, and I only saw it on Accord at EX trims and higher. The OEM Blind Spot Monitors are sensors built into the side rear panels of the car.

Yes, aftermarket kits. I can only find aftermarket BSM for 2019 Civic. So I went to Honda dealer this afternoon and took pictures of side view mirrors. I cannot tell difference between two vehicles. There is one thing I need to verify -- inside of side view mirror. Last year I bought aftermarket BSM for Toyota RAV4. But inside of side view mirrors are different between China version and US version.


Today I also took picture of Accord side view mirror. It can't use for Insight.

Aftermarket Blind Spot Monitoring

Guy who worked on my stereo says he can install bsm on my insight if I want. It's aftermarket and will hide behind the rear bumper sides. The lights would be installed somewhere in the cabin. Price.. a cool $900 installed.

Sadly, Honda's MSRP increase from 19/20 Insight (with LaneWatch) to 2021 Insight (with Blind Spot Monitoring) is 'only' +$650 (excluding $60 increase in destination fee).

Will be interesting to re-check pricing for aftermarket install, once 2021 OEM parts become available... maybe it would bring the price down from $900 installed? But maybe not, since Honda charges a fortune for OEM parts?

Well at least you can get the parts for 30% off online. I'm wondering if I could interface the new mirrors with the system Adam suggested so I can have lights on the mirrors with an aftermarket system. Of course, I have crimson Pearl and would now have to repaint some of the mirror since they dumped my color 😫
