Using the symmetry modifier can you select elements on either side or do you have to select them on the original? Ie. is it a mirrored instance, reference or something inbetween? According to your instance video you wouldn't be able to have it both ways - ie twoway communication and one instance slightly different (mirrored) than the other.
